Abstract:

The objects of the report are to increase the knowledge of the physical and optical properties of ice fog and to develop techniques for its dispersal. Two series of flight tests to determine the effects of CH-47 helicopter downwash on ice fog were conducted near Ft. Wainwright, Alaska, in January 1971. During the first series, clearings were produced which were large enough for helicopter operations. This series of tests was conducted when the ice fog was in a dissipating state. The second series of tests was conducted in a denser ice fog during its developing stage. The same flight procedures were used, but clearings were not produced. Author
