Continued progress in understanding the physical and chemical attributes and behaviors of natural and artificial fogs will provide for localized modeling. When these are integrated with community or population-impact models the prediction of fog occurrence, intensity, evolution, coverage, and impacts will be further enhanced. These will require the use of emerging decision-making tools, visualization environments, additional observational networks, and the development of advanced warning systems that monitor the pre-fog environment in order to provide real-time updates and automated advisories. Further work on the mitigation and prevention of fog will proceed from these efforts in order to enhance operations while reducing impacts and costs to the safety and health of select populations as well as economic sectors.
