Over Lake Michigan the large source of relatively warm water enhances the chances for steam fog, so other conditions, such as wind, etc., are less of an influence. In contrast, rivers FIG. 1.

Abstract

correspondence Steam Fog: A System Interaction of Air and River William H. Raymond and Timothy J. Schmit, Coop- erative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wl 53706 1. Introduction Steam fog is very common over Lake Michigan and lakes in general, especially during eary winter cold air outbreaks (Church 1945). Over Lake Michigan the large source of relatively warm water enhances the chances for steam fog, so other conditions, such as wind, etc., are less of an influence. In contrast, rivers FIG. 1.
