- Describe the differing processes that lead to radiation fog and advection fog
- State the two key ingredients for the formation of fog or low stratus: increasing moisture in the boundary layer or decreasing boundary layer temperatures.
- Properly identify which processes are dominating a particular fog or low stratus event. You can do this by:
- Examining the characteristics of the processes involved,
- Examining the low-level factors that are influencing the event, and
- Comparing these to the known characteristics, processes, and factors that distinguish a radiation event from an advective event.
