Abstract : Fog-forecasting parameters used by Leipper along the California coastline were adapted for open-ocean use by Clark (1981) in the Gulf of Alaska for non-frontal fog situations. Clark's fog-forecasting indices are tested now for another North Pacific Ocean location at OSV V (34N, 164E) during July-August, 1968-1971. These indices appear to describe frontal as well as non-frontal fog situations in the North Pacific Ocean in the summer. Additional study is needed to forecast precise start and termination times of such fog occurrence. (Author)
