  1. Above the inversion layer, Viz is ??, Turbulence is??. Stability is ??
    Viz is better, Turbulence is less, and stability is increased
  2. Above an inversion layer, relative humidity is likely to be (higher/lower) and the dew point is likely to be (higher/lower)
    Lower, Lower
  3. The formation of a Radiation inversion requires ?? Skies, and ?? Winds.
    Clear skies,

    Light winds.
  4. Cloud, initially associated with a tubulence inversion, is likely to be (stratiform/Qs) which often changes to ??? when more intense mixing occurs.
    Stratiform,

    Stratocumulus
  5. Both radiation and turbulence inversions are more likely to occur in a (high/Low)
    High
  6. A subsidence inversion is likely to form when the high level (convergence/divergence) is (stronger/weaker) than the low level (convergence/divergence)
    Convergence,

    stronger,

    Divergence.
