United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) is suffering almost all the year by the consequences of visibility reduction caused either by persistent dust and haze episodes or by the occurrence of thick fogs especially over marine and costal regions. Visibility drop due to fog usually happens during late night and early morning and could last several hours before dissipation. The U.A.E coastal fogs are generally advective caused by the north westerly surface flow draining huge amounts of moisture from the…

Assessing the Impact of Changes in Land Surface Conditions on WRF Predictions in Arid Regions
A thorough evaluation of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model is conducted over the United Arab Emirates, for the period September 2017–August 2018. Two simulations are performed: one

Boundary Layer Parameterizations to Simulate Fog Over Atlantic Canada Waters
In this study, a series of fog events that occurred near Halifax, Canada, during 20 June to 31 July 2016 are investigated using the Weather Research and Forecasting Model Version 3.8.1 (WRF), in
Numerical simulations of an advection fog event over Shanghai Pudong International Airport with the WRF model
A series of numerical simulations is conducted to understand the formation, evolution, and dissipation of an advection fog event over Shanghai Pudong International Airport (ZSPD) with the Weather
Combing MSG thermal channels with meteorological data for fog forecasting and mapping over desert areas in the UAE
TLDR
An algorithm for now-casting, detecting and monitoring fog events in the United Arab Emirates was developed based on developing a neural-networks system in MATLAB, mainly using METEOSAT SEVIRI data and local meteorological data.
Characteristics and properties of United Arab Emirates fog events using meteosat second generation thermal and visible channels
TLDR
The methods used by EIAST for using satellite remote sensing for detecting and now-casting fog events are described and temperature difference between two infrared bands forms the basis for fog detection and classification.
Assessment of the Sensitivity to the Thermal Roughness Length in Noah and Noah-MP Land Surface Model Using WRF in an Arid Region
Atmospheric models are known to underestimate land surface temperature and, by association, 2 m air temperature over dry arid regions during the day due to the treatment of the thermal roughness
