Abstract : The Stanford Research Institute carried on a study of ice fog at Eielson Air Force Base between 1951 and 1955. Their report (Robinson et al., 1955) is the most comprehensive available on the subject, yet several areas of research still need attention. The study began with three general objectives: (1) Genesis and morphology of ice crystal forms in ice fogs. (2) Vertical distribution of temperature and crystal forms in ice fogs. (3) Meso-micro-meteorological conditions associated with ice fog development and dissipation. Observations were made during the winters of 1961-62 and 1962-63. (Author)
