dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to search for a consistent link between temperature inversions and the occurrence of marine advection fog, in order that the temperature inversions could possibly be used as a forecasting aid at coastal stations. A data base of 10 months, July 1973 to April 1974, was used in the study, covering the summer, fall, and winter seasons. The inversion parameters investigated were the height of the inversion base, thickness of the inversion layer and the temperature gradient within the inversion layer. A relationship between the change in inversion parameters and the occurrence of fog was found to exist at San Diego, California, in the summer and winter seasons. At Oakland, California, consistency in the change of at least one parameter was found in the summer and fall seasons, and the first two months of the winter season.
