The temperature inversions were studied on the basis of Digital Memory Bathythermography(DBT) data collected by training ship, Pusan 402, of the National Fisheries University of Pusan in August 23~25, 1986 and Fisheries Reserach and Development Agency of Korea in August, 1986, The results were as follows; Among the 67 stations of studied area, occurrence frequency of temperature inversion was 58.20%, And the frequency of onefold occurrence of temperature inversion at its profile of each station was 13.42%. of twofold occurrence was 20.80%, and of threefold occurrence was 23.88%. In the studied area, the temperature inversion usually occurred below the 40m depth and its layers also located below the thermocline. The temperature range of its inversion was from 14$^{\circ}C$ to 16$^{\circ}C$. The temperature inversion in the study area was oaused by the interaction between Tsushima Warm Current and Korea Coastal Waters.
