We have compiled data from Finnish sounding stations and classified the inversions according to their total depth and the stability of the boundary layer. We studied the persistence of the inversions and the influence of cloudiness and wind speed on the temperature gradient. Additionally, we addressed the specific problems of an urban area, using measurements from a meteorological mast situated in the Helsinki metropolitan area by comparing them to those from the radiosonde profiles at the… CONTINUE READING
