Temperature, pressure and moisture measurements were made fro the surface to 2,000 feet over the Monterey Bay during several different synoptic conditions. Data collection was made from ground level and a helicopter; however, most of the data were collected from the helicopter due to the height limitation of the ground equipment. Cross sections of temperature and moisture were drawn over a wide range of fog conditions. these profiles gave a relatively accurate description of the fine structure of the lower 2,000 feet of the atmosphere. The profiles were used in conjunction with the broad synoptic wind and visibility as a basis for the conclusions stated.
