Abstract:

Several methods for estimation of the visibility for fog forecasting, including the proposed by authors are discussed. To get necessary meteorological information, WRF-ARW model was used. The forecasts were estimated using the European network of synoptic observation data, with high spatial increments. The analysis of the methods in general showed satisfactory quality of prediction of this phenomenon.

Keywords:

fog, meteorological visibility, mesoscale modeling, transfer of moisture in the surface layer
