Inversion layer.



  • Is it possible somehow to catch inversion of temperature layer? I imagine myself a map where algorithm checks if temperature 100m above selected is grather and if so it colours it depending on the difference. Sometimes there are also forecasted anomalies that inversion layer is at very high altitude and I wanted to catch these.

    If you want to find temperature inversions, locally you can use the Sounding feature (Click on RH mouse button or long press on screen if using the App)

    Temperature profile is shown up to 150hPa.



  • Yes, I understand that but I wanted to check out on map where such thing is predicted and probably recognize area where it is happening due to human activity and where it is naturally occurring. I believe that it is responsible for smog and looking to easily compare my region with other industrial area.
    Making that manually for every point takes a lot of work which might be not acquired as neutral opinion.

    I understand that you would like to see inversion of temperature on a map. But I don’t think that inversion of temperature is due to human activity such as industrial activity. It is just a natural phenomenon that occurs specially in cold season. It brings stratus or even fog when the inversion is close to the ground. In an industrial region the inversion traps the air pollutants. IMHO temperature inversion is the cause of the pollution concentration, not the consequence.
