The evolutionary cycle of the nocturnal radiation inversion layer from formation until dissipation under fair weather conditions was investigated by time-series analyses of observations of inversion base and top heights, and inversion strength at an urban and a nonurban site in St. Louis, Missouri. The time-dependent behavior of each inversion parameter is presented from statistical and least-squares regression analyses. Differences of inversion evolution between these sites are discussed.
