Fog: Atmosphere, biosphere, land, and ocean interactions
Stratocumulus and fog define the climatology of the eastern Pacific coast, and numerous other regions, impacting the hydrology, chemistry, and thermodynamic balance of ecosystems and urban environments. Factors driving fog formation and evolution include synoptic meteorology, atmospheric inversions, SST, sea spray, aerosol-cloud dynamics, topography, and land surface variables. Understanding fog and biotic responses to fog require a diverse array of measurements and models that link processes at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Seasonal fog projections and assessment of marine fog’s vulnerability to climate change are critical for coastal adaptation planning. We seek presentations on physical, chemical, biological, and anthropogenic processes that drive and are influenced by coastal or non-coastal fog using any of the following: process models; ground-based, airborne, or satellite observations; manipulative experiments; or other analysis.
