The report summarizes the results of a two night field operation in the San Joaquin Valley of California. The purpose of this operation was to test the feasibility of using a corona discharge mechanism to dissipate warm fog. Heavy fog was encountered on two nights and during both fogs the authors monitored visibility and droplet size distribution while injecting electrical charge into the atmosphere with a 90kVolt discharge. No effects which could be attributed to modification of the fog by the corona discharge were detected.
