UK coastal dwellers will be familiar with advection fog, which is a common feature of spring weather.
(2) Its humidity precipitates out as a low, stratified fog layer (advection fog) on top of the coastal water.
The approach has been outlined previously.[8] For example, taking a fairly severe fog condition, CAT II advection fog at the lower limit of visibility and at a temperature of 20 [degrees] K and considering 35 GHz radiation, the extinction coefficient is 0.044 (1/km) due to the saturated atmosphere and 0.005 (1/km) due to the condensed fog droplets.
Advection fog is another type of fog that forms due to warm, humid air moving over a cold surface.
Among the five simulated events, two will be discussed here in detail (Section 4): one winter case of radiative fog (23/12/2012) and one summer case of advection fog (18/07/2013).
This is called advection fog. Expect to see it sometimes when flying to places along the Gulf Coast or the West Coast.
