The problem of forecasting marine fog in the North Pacific has been hampered by insufficient knowledge of meteorological parameters which are intrinsic to its formation. Eight hundred ninety six observations at three-hourly intervals from two North Pacific Ocean Stations during May and June 1953 were analyzed. Fixed point time series analysis methods were used for selected point parameters. Analyses of radiosonde data for the surface to the seven hundred fifty-millibar level provided information on the relationship between marine fog and the occurrence of low level inversions. Synoptic flow patterns were determined from surface pressure maps.
