Pertinent climatological data are analyzed for fog conditions prevailing visibility 12 mile and less without precipitation at 45 U. S. airports for the ten year period 1956-1965. These data are considered essential for use in the design of systems to disperse andor prevent fog at airports. Tables and statistical values are included for wind spped vs. frequency, wind direction vs frequency, wind direction vs wind speed, visibility vs frequency, temperature vs frequency and cumulative totals for all airports. An additional analysis is included for fog at temperatures less than 33 deg. to include wind direction vs frequency, wind direction vs wind speed, wind rose data and temperature vs frequency. Monthly fog frequencies are stated for both cold and warm fog.
