Liquid-phase pollutant concentrations in fogs^1 have been reported to be significantly higher than those commonly observed in acidic precipitation. Lower dilutions in fog droplets, as well as higher scavenging efficiencies due to reduced mass transfer limitations of reaction kinetics and longer residence times may explain these high concentrations.
