Inversions on northern and southern slopes of the Low Tatras

  • D. Holý


This work deals with the occurrence of inversions on the northern and southern slopes of the Low Tatras in the Chopok region. The data for the northern exposure have been taken from the meteorological stations at 648 m a.s.l., 1200 m a.s.l., and 1660 m a.s.l. For the southern exposure from the meteorological stations 506 m a.s.l., 1208 m a.s.l., 1490 m a.s.l., and from the top of Chopok (2008 m a.s.l.). The evaluated 10-year period covers the years 1973–1982. The inversion have been determined by means of the comparison of regular observations (at 7 a.m., 2 and 9 p.m.), of the average daily temperature, maximum and minimum temperatures and an arbitrary term of the determinate day. It follows from this evaluation, that the inversion has a characteristic course, with maximum frequency during winter, particularly during anticyclonic situations. With increasing altitude, the number of inversion days decreases.
