Abstract : The patent describes a method for the destruction of a warm fog. This is accomplished by dispersing through the atmosphere a sufficient quantity of low moisture, cellulose fibrous structure, such as small absorbent paper section, which may contain a hygroscopic agent. Said structures function to absorb moisture and to collect water droplets as they descend through the atmosphere at a speed of not more than 4.0 feet per second.
