Abstract : A system of equations is given which describes the evolution of radiation fog from the moment of its inception to the time of its dispersion. The coefficient of turbulent exchange is considered an unknown value, and for closing of the system, equations of the dynamics of a nonstationary stratified boundary layer are used. In the system of equations, one takes into account the radiational thermal exchange in the atmosphere and the effect of gravitational forces on the water content in the fog, and one establishes in the first approximation the relationship between macroprocesses and microprocesses.
