The folding back of strata upon themselves, as by upheaval, in such a manner that the order of succession appears to be reversed.

The conversion of direct current into alternating current; the inverse of rectification. See inverted rectifier.
A portion of the genome in which the DNA has been turned around, and runs in a direction opposite to its normal direction, and consequently the genes are present in the reverse of their usual order.
An increase of temperature with height in the atmosphere.
An abbreviation for 'inversion of temperature gradient'. The temperature of the air, generally decreases with increasing height but occasionally the reverse is the case; when the temperature thus increases with height there is said to be an inversion. When an inversion exists at lower levels fog, often occurs.
An atmospheric layer in which temperature and/or moisture increase with height. The bending of a radio wave because the upper part of the beam is slowed down as it travels through denser air. This may occur when a body of cold air moves in under a moisture-laden body of air.
A region in the atmosphere where the temperature increases with height. The presence of an inversion creates a very stable atmosphere; when it occurs at the surface it leads to very little mixing and a trapping of pollutants in the lower atmosphere.
A part of the track where the rider is turned upside down. Do not confuse with inverted.
mutational event in which a break in the DNA sugar-phosphate backbone results in the freed chromosomal piece being reinserted in reverse order (flipped over/inverted).
Atmospheric inversion. The departure from the usual increase or decrease with altitude of the value of an atmospheric property. In fire management usage, nearly always refers to an increase in temperature with increasing height. Also, the layer through which this departure occurs (also called inversion layer.) The lowest altitude at which the departure is found is called the base of the inversion. see also: Atmospheric Inversion; Atmospheric Stability; Stable Layer of Air
A chromosomal aberration in which a double break occurs and a segment is turned 180¡ before it is reincorporated into the chromosome.
a form of chromosome aberration in which parts of a chromosome break and reunite in a reversed order. No genetic material is lost or gained, but the positions of the involved alleles are altered.
a layer in the atmosphere (usually very shallow 0.4 km), where temperature rises with increasing height. Two of the best-known in operational meteorology are the nocturnal inversion (formed due to strong cooling of land surfaces after sunset), and the subsidence inversion (due to descent & adiabatic warming of air associated with anticyclones). Another near-surface type is that formed when warm air travels over a cold surface (e.g. cold seas or ice/snow).
Typically, a temperature inversion, or a zone in the atmosphere in which the temperature increases with altitude, instead of the expected decrease. In general, an inversion is any reversal of the normal trend of the property of an atmospheric substance with respect to altitude.
An atmospheric layer where temperature increases with height in contrast to a normal decrease in temperature with height. Inversion is more common under high pressure with clear skies and light winds. Warm air above the surface of the ground acts as a lid, trapping colder air in low-lying valleys. Temperatures can be cooler in valleys under the inversion than higher elevated mountain slopes. An extended duration of inversion can lead to increased air pollution. -- Jet Stream A zone of strong winds concentrated in a narrow band in the upper atmosphere; these winds are often referred to as the storm track since the jet stream often "steers" atmospheric storms. -- Katabatic Wind Wind blowing down an incline, such as down a hillside; downslope wind.

A stable air condition in which the air near the ground is cooler than the air higher up in the atmosphere
A chromosomal rearrangement in which a segment of a chromosome has inverted from end to end, and re-inserted into the chromosome at the same breakage site. Balanced inversions (in which no net loss or gain of genetic material occurs) are usually not associated with phenotypic abnormalities, however, in some cases, gene disruptions at the breakpoints can cause adverse phenotypic effects, including some known genetic diseases. Unbalanced inversions (in which loss or gain of chromosome material occurs) nearly always yield an abnormal phenotype.
