Arctic haze is a phenomenon that occurs in the atmosphere at high latitudes in the Arctic due to air pollution. What distinguishes Arctic haze from haze found elsewhere, is the ability of its chemical ingredients to endure in the atmosphere for a longer period of time compared to other pollutants. Due to limited snowfall, rain, or turbulent air to displace pollutants from the polar air in the spring, Arctic haze can continue for more than a month in the northern atmosphere. Arctic haze was...

Mist is a phenomenon that consists of small droplets of water suspended in air. Mist occurs as part of a natural weather event or from volcanic activity. Mist is most common in cold air above warm water. Mist also occurs when air is exhaled in cold temperatures or when steam is formed in a sauna. Aerosol cans can create artificial mist if the humidity levels are just right. The one difference between mist and fog is visibility. If visibility is less than 0.62 miles (1 kilometer), the...
