Abstract:

Cooperative fog dispersal trials were conducted with the FOGGY CLOUD IV Project team at ArcataEureka Airport and in Redwood Valley, California. these trials demonstrated that both the rotating screen impactor and the disc particulator can be used to generate finely divided particulate 50 micron diameter median range of the high viscosity chemicals used for fog dispersal. Glycerine, diethylene glycol, and tetraethylene glycol were successfully generated into a fine mist using these devices. Three runs were made treating fog with glycerine. Visibility improvement was observed, but not measured, in each run.
