In the development of CASSTA, it was discovered that standard ice and sea surface temperature algorithms produce false warm anomalies in regions of ice fog, which resemble open water on AVHRR imagery because of the spectral properties of ice crystals (Vincent et al.
Sequences of images for 30 March and 24 April were subsequently chosen for the analysis since those were relatively clear of ice fog, permitting an accurate calculation of open water.
In the development of CASSTA, it was found that regions in which the differential between Channel 4 and Channel 5 (T45) exceeded 2 C were areas covered by ice fog that cloaked the surface temperature (Vincent, 2006: Vincent et al.
The CASSTA imagery suggests that the amount of ice fog is related to tidal forces.
Ice fog can damage the J52 motor, and we cannot afford to waste your valuable time repairing an engine problem that could have been avoided.
Ice fog and frost occur commonly (at least 26% of the time) in the northern latitudes and Arctic regions during winter at temperatures usually less than about -15[degrees]C.
Increased understanding of ice fog microphysics can improve frost and ice fog prediction using forecast models and remote-sensing retrievals, thereby reducing potential hazards to aviation.
Ice fog occurs usually at temperatures less than -15[degrees]C because of direct deposition of water vapor into ice nuclei.
