Study The Relationship of Thermal Reflection Intensity with Its Height and Thickness
Keywords:Inversion, height, intensity, thickness
AbstractSurface heat inversion (SHI) is important in determining the spread of pollutants in the lower part of the troposphere. This paper presents the relationship between heat inversion intensity and its height and thickness using the daily radiosonde data (midnight) of the period from (2013-2014) obtained from the Iraq Meteorological Organization and Seismology (IMOS). The results of the study were that heat inversion intensity increases with the increase in height in winter, summer, and autumn, during the spring, so there is no relationship. The relationship of heat inversion thickness with intensity is linear in spring, summer, and autumn, but inverse in winter.
