Abstract : The WEARSCHFAC warm-fog computer model simulates the effect of introducing man-made hygroscopic particles into warm fog. Particle growth is by condensation and coalescence. The model has been used extensively to study warm-fog dissipation using salt particles and brine sprays, and comparisons between model results and field experiments indicate encouraging agreement. The model was employed to simulate the growth of certain hygroscopic particles when released in a warm, dense, maritime fog. The resulting hygroscopic particle growth by condensation and coalescence is discussed.
