Temperature and wave propagation

We're back from vacation and ready to start out the new year with a test of our radio witts. As you know, our latest experience with sub freezing temperatures started me wondering about the relationship (if any) temperature plays with wave propagation. At first glance, it seems that temperature is not a factor in wave propagation but temperature inversions definitely affect radio communications. So does temperature really have an effect or not? What do you think? You probably are well aware of tropospheric ducting so what role does temperature play in propagation phenomena? (if any)

Here's some starter articles
