What is a temperature inversion?

    Most days, the temperature of the atmosphere gets cooler as you go higher. In effect, the normal scenario is that cool air sits in top of warm air. However, sometimes the opposite happens. Simply put, temperature inversion is “the situation of having warm air on top of cooler air.” In the process, the temperature profile of the atmosphere is ‘inverted’ from its usual state. There are two types of temperature inversions: surface inversions that occur near the Earth’s surface, and aloft inversions that occur above the ground.
