Standard Practice for the Design, Operation, and Evaluation of Supercooled Fog Dispersal Projects
|Publication Date:||1 January 2020|
SCOPE OF STANDARD
The focus of this standard is the dispersal of supercooled fog. Fogclearing operations are required under US law to be reported to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Sponsors shall periodically publish the results of these activities, because knowing about them could improve the understanding of fogs and their impacts on society and the environment.
The remainder of this document includes capability statements for fog dispersal and an abridged version of the physics of supercooled fog formation and dispersal, as well as recommendations for planning, organizing, conducting, and evaluating a supercooled fog dispersal project. The status of supercooled fog dispersal technology is summarized in Appendix C. The International System of Units, or SI units, and any CGS units of this document can be converted using Appendix A.
