That is exactly what is happening just outside California's Golden Gate, asserts Robert Ovetz, executive director of Seaflow: Protect Our Living Oceans, Sausalito, Calif.

FOR AUCKLANDERS the weather was just plain weird. While most of the city bathed in sunlight, fog closed the airport for much of yesterday and badly disrupted air travel. Out on the runway pilots were greeted with the unusual scene of the eastern half of the runway in clear sunshine while those taking off to the west hit dense fog seconds after takeoff. By about 2pm the airport was trying to resume normal operations. Airlines had cancelled 60 domestic arrivals into Auckland and 53 out...

By Christensen, Tyler Fog grounded three flights at Missoula International Airport last week, and airport director Cris Jensen was delighted. The fog could have grounded a lot more, he explained. Fortunately, the airport's new de-fogging machines are working wonderfully. It takes them only about half an hour to punch a hole in the haze big enough for an airplane to fly through. The Missoula airport purchased the "fog-seeding" system just before Thanksgiving in anticipation of another...

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent OSLO (Reuters) - China says its scientists make enough rain to fill the Yellow River; Moscow claims credit for sunshine for Red Square parades -- but confidence in other nations that humans can alter the weather has almost dried up. If it worked reliably, the use of aircraft and rockets to spread tiny chemical particles into the sky to "seed" or disperse clouds could be the answer to famine, drought, desertification, even global warming....

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Three new wide releases hit theaters this past weekend, but altogether they failed to make much of a dent at the boxoffice, barely mustering a combined $27 million among them. Sony's "The Fog," a Revolution Studios production and a remake of John Carpenter's 1980 horror film, debuted in the top spot with a murky $11.8 million. The opening for "The Fog" will be noted as the lowest gross for a No. 1 film at the boxoffice since Labor Day weekend 2004....

The above map identifies the visibility throughout the United States. We as meteorologist use surface visibility charts to help identify where certain features are possibly at. If we look at the red circle near San Diego we can see that it says ¼ visibility meaning that they are experiencing Fog at their weather station, which can lead to many problems from traffic on the roads and also the shipping lanes of the ocean.

The California Current

The California current runs north to south along the West Coast of the United States. This current has huge impacts on the weather along the west coast. Along California this current is responsible for extensive Marine Fog layers every day during the summer, especially when the land is warmer than the waters along the coast. Also in the California area this current keeps the coastal cities cooler such as San Diego. In the Northwest along the coast of Seattle this current is responsible for...

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...
