Abstract

A one-dimensional radiation fog model is presented. It is coupled with a second model to include the effects of tall vegetation. The fog model describes in detail the dynamics, thermodynamics, and microphysical structure of a fog, as well as the interactions with the atmospheric radiative transfer. A two-dimensional joint size distribution for the aerosol particles and activated fog droplets is used, the activation of aerosol particles is explicitly modeled. The implications of the presence of tall vegetation on the state of the atmosphere and on the evolution of radiation fog are stated. It is shown that the existence of tall vegetation impedes the evolution of radiation fog. The life cycle of radiation fog is discussed. The input of fog water and associated aerosol particles onto the vegetation surfaces via fog water interception processes is assessed. A one-dimensional radiation fog model is presented.
