Barry 2005 , 139–143). During polar night, when there is little or no solar radiation, an atmospheric temperature inversion results from longwave radiative equilibrium between the highly emissive colder snow surface and the less emissive and warmer lower troposphere. It is maintained by the northward advection of warmer subarctic air ( Overland and Guest 1991 ). The strength of the lower-troposphere temperature inversion is strongly influenced by the presence of diamond dust ( Overland and Guest
