Results of thermal and chemical fog dispersal tests, conducted by AFCRL during July 1972, are presented and discussed. Forty-three tests were conducted in fog, thirty-three of which were suitable for analysis. Ninety-six additional heat tests were conducted in clear air. Two wide-area urea seeding tests were also performed. An instrumented 200-ft tower, a lidar, and a ground network of visibility sensors and droplet sampler were used to monitor the effects of the tests on the foggy environment. The seeding tests were unsuccessful. Improper execution of the wide-area seeding pattern due to a lack of knowledge of the winds at the seeding location was responsible for the failure of the seeding tests. Modified author abstract
