We considered the results of the complex measurements of meteorological parameters at two observation sites in Moscow with the help of Volna-4 sodar, Meteo-2 ultrasonic meteorological station, and MTP-5 meteorological temperature profiler. The frequency of occurrence and the heights of temperature inversion boundaries under the conditions of woodland-park zone are analyzed. The obtained results are compared with analogous estimates of some other authors for central part of the city. It is found that a stable stratification of the urban roughness sub-layer takes place considerably more often in the woodland-park zone of the city than in the central part of the urbanized territory.
