Abstract

Throughout aviation history, fog has been the greatest single weather factor in the disruption of civilian and military air operations. It has been estimated that the cost to civilian airlines due to curtailment of services due to fog is of the order of seventy-five million dollars annually (1, 4). For purposes of selecting methods of dispersal, fogs have been classified as supercooled fogs (fogs existing at temperatures of 0°C and lower) and warm fogs (fogs existing at temperatures warmer than 0°C).
