    Abstract

    The study of valley temperature structure and the formation of temperature inversions have been studied numerous times. However little of these studies are performed in high latitude areas, with little known about the effects of the arctic circle felt on the temperatures recorded. The purpose of this study is to look at the factors that control the research area of Kevo in northern Finland, 69°45'N, 27°01'E. The factors studied in this study, were how the elevation affects temperature, the aspect of the slopes and the effect of wind speed and direction on data recorded. Particular attention is paid to the formation of temperature inversions in this area and the governing factors behind these.
