Abstract: Temperature inversions of several types have been observed over Patiala during initial phases of setting up of an acoustic echosonde in Aug 1980. Surface-based inversions and elevated layers have been observed to be predominantly nighttime phenomena. The thickness of the surface-based inversion is found to be around 100 m while the elevated layers have thickness varying from 20 to 180 m with a peak of occurrence between 30 and 60 m. The surface-based layer rises after sunrise. The total structure in the morning is found to be correlated with radiosonde observations. The water vapour in the atmosphere seems to play a role in controlling the thickness and intensity of the surface-based inversions.
