38 : Fog as a Hydrologic Input

  title={38 : Fog as a Hydrologic Input},
  author={LA SAMPURNO BRUIJNZEEL and Werner Eugster and Reto Burkard},
This article reviews the hydrologic importance of fog in its various forms. Meteorologically, fog is defined as a ground-touching cloud with a visibility in the horizontal of less than 1000 m. The most widely occurring fog types include radiation fog, sea fog and steam fog, and advection fog, but often fog is also referred to by its location of occurrence (coastal, valley, or mountain fog). The physical processes underlying the various types of fog are described briefly. The use, advantages… CONTINUE READING
