Clouds

Shelby Sorensen

Fog~ clouds on the ground-> 4- types of fog

1. Radiation Fog~ results when the ground loses heat through radiation usually at night, the ground is warmer than the air as it warms the air and it increases the dew point when the air cools due to the lose of radiation the dew point is reached and a cloud or fog is formed.


2. Advection Fog~ when warm, moist air moves horizontally over a cold surface, such as snow ceased ground or a cold ocean current ( sea to land).


3. Upslope fog~ created by adiabatic cooling when humid air climbs a topographic slope.


4. Evaporation Fog~ when water vapor is added to cold air that is already near saturation.
