Abstract : Data representative of a maritime region with a high frequency of fog were compiled from a number of studies conducted in the Eureka-Arcata coastal region of California. This compilation is presented as background material for operational planning purposes for activities operating in this highly foggy region. General topics addressing the Eureka-Arcata region are: (1) A general description of the physiography, climatology, and oceanography; (2) offshore wind and fog climatology; (3) onshore climatological, information on fog-occurrence wind, and visibility; (4) computer simulation of wind fields and trajectories during low visibility conditions; and (5) physical characteriscs of coastal fogs.
