Clouds and Fog: Fog
Fog occurs around the world and leads to many impacts on human and related systems. The formation of fog, its intensity, duration, and coverage are governed by synoptic and mesoscale forces, thermodynamics, and circulations. However, these are modified according to the local physiographic features in a region and vary with atmospheric chemistry and cloud microphysical processes. While the prediction of fog remains difficult due to its significant spatio-temporal variations, advances have been made through numerical modeling. Other uses and impacts of fog have increased with our understanding of the phenomenon and the parameters that determine fog characteristics and behaviors.
