1. Introduction Marine fog is a hazard to shipping, fishing, oil and gas operations, and search and rescue missions around the world. It can occur frequently as Dorman et al. (2017) have indicated, but it is also difficult to predict as described by Koračin (2017) . This paper describes observations made offshore Newfoundland and Labrador in one of the foggiest marine areas (see Dorman et al. 2017 ). Some unique measurements describing open-ocean fog have been made and the location of the

APRIL 1954 WILLIAM C. THUMAN AND ELMER ROBINSON151STUDIES OF ALASKAN ICE-FOG PARTICLESBy William C. Thuman and Elmer Robinson Stanford Research Institute1 (Manuscript received 28 September 1953)ABSTRACTDuring the 1952-1953 winter, studies were made at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, of ice fog and otherlow-temperature aerosol phenomena. The particulate material, collected by settling onto glass slides attemperatures below - 20C, was classified as hexagonal plates, prismatic columns

ELDRIDOE6 Preston Rd., Lexington, Mass.(Manuscript received 7 January 1971, in revised form 25 May 1971)ABSTRACT An analytical technique employing a fog drop-size distribution model is used to demonstrate the importance of the width of measured drop-size distributions when evolving a

Fog life cycles in the central Namib Desert have been studied during the NaFoLiCA intensive observation period, which is described together with initial analyses of the extensive dataset. Fog as a meteorological phenomenon is associated with low visibility, high relative humidity/cold air, and danger for car/air traffic. However, in one of the driest regions on Earth—the Namib Desert—fog instead represents a major source of water for plants and animals. Figure 1 illustrates this striking
