Introduction Disasters at sea around the Korean peninsula have greatly increased, because transports by sea have increased with recent industrial development. The disasters usually occur during bad weather, such as storms and sea fog ( Lee 1992 ). In particular, the dense sea fogs have frequently caused the collision of ships. However, there has been no proper forecasting of sea fog occurrence. This is mainly due to the lack of understanding of sea fog under various synoptic conditions in this
