  • Fog Seeding/Fog Dissipation

    Fog Seeding/Fog Dissipation

    There are two primary fog types: warm and cold fog. These fog types are differentiated by temperature, with warm fog occurring at 32°F (0°C)or above, and cold fog at temperatures below 32°F (0°C). Both types are composed of water droplets. Warm fog is the more common of the two in most parts of the world, is microphysically stable and difficult to modify. Cold fog, on the other hand, is microphysically unstable and can be modified much...
