4 types of temperature inversion

Temperature inversion is a condition in which the temperature of the atmosphere increases with altitude in contrast to the normal decrease with altitude. When temperature inversion occurs, cold air underlies warmer air at higher altitudes. There are four kinds of temperature inversions: ground, turbulence, subsidence, and frontal. A ground inversion develops when air is cooled …

Causes and consequence of temperature inversions

Temperature inversion is a condition in which the temperature of the atmosphere increases with altitude in contrast to the normal decrease with altitude. When temperature inversion occurs, cold air underlies warmer air at higher altitudes.     Normally, temperature decreases with an increase in elevation. It is called the normal lapse rate. At times, the …
