C-FOG C-FOG is two-year comprehensive research program on coastal fog with emphasis on sub-grid thermodynamic and microphysical processes relevant to numerical weather predictions and other forecasting models.
C-FOG

Welcome to the C-FOG

Program Objective

The project is centered on a field program over land and water to be conducted in eastern Canada at two supersites (in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland) rich in fog climatology and conducive to disparate fog types (warm and cold advective fogs, ice fog). An unprecedented array of in situ, path integrating and remote sensing instruments, profilers, and a UAV will be deployed, allowing measurements across a swath of space-time scales relevant to fog formation. Instrumentation platforms will be located over both land and the coastal ocean.

The research program encompasses fundamentals (life cycle, radiative transfer, turbulence, and boundary-layer structure), microphysics (droplet characterization, nucleation), thermodynamics (radiative mechanisms, phase changes), detection (in-situ and path measurements, profiling and remote sensing), satellite observations (GOES-R, MODIS), and forecasting/numerical modeling (mesoscale and microscale modeling, validations, parameterizations).
