Abstract : The feasibility of designing a dynamical model for forecasting, the development of fog and stratus was studied. To this end, several simple models based on numerical solutions of the diffusion equation were constructed and solved, and the resulting predictions were examined with two major points in mind. The first point deals with the feasibility of achieving any degree of success with this type of model. The second point deals with the type of observational data which would be needed for it, and the time and space scales on which the observations would have to be made. (Author)
