Abstract

Visibility in warm fog produced in a 600-cubic-meter chamber was increased by factors of 3 to 10 by seeding with carefully sized sodium chloride particles. As little as 1.7 milligrams of salt per cubic meter was effective. Extrapolation of these results indicates that clearing a suitable landing zone for aircraft would not involve prohibitive amounts of seeding material.
