in atmospheric chemistry
https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.I03147
The height above ground level at which there is change in sign of the normal temperature 'lapse rate', $$\frac{\text{d}T}{\text{d}z}$$ (the rate of change of the temperature with height). Several temperature inversions may be present in the air over a given site at different altitudes as result of various meteorological factors.
