Fogwater Composition in Southern California


In an urban region such as southern California, incorporation of air pollutants into the aqueous chemistry occuring within fog and cloud droplets can represent an important component of the regional air pollution. Field and laboratory studies have indicated that droplet-phase chemistry is important in SO_2 oxidation. In Los Angeles, the presence of coastal fog and low clouds in the morning has been observed to correlate well with high sulfate aerosol levels during the subsequent afternoon.
