Fog has always lent a mysterious or eerie tone to landscapes across the world. Though fascinating, it is simply a collection of water (or ice) droplets that consolidate and stand suspended in air. In general terms, fog could be considered a type of cloud. What defines fog from its larger cousins is its low lying nature and its ability to be generated locally (e.g. nearby bodies of water, or the ocean). Click HERE for more details.
The type of fog that creeps across inland lakes and swallows full houses is called “advection fog.” This mass of moisture is caused by condensation, and is created by warm saturated air moving across a cold surface. Also, this type of fog generally moves horizontally across the ground, engulfing objects big or small. Advection fog can also be created when warm moist ocean air travels across cold landmasses, such as coastlines. This usually happens at night when land temperatures drop due to natural radiation cooling.
