Advection fog is commonplace during the cool and transition seasons near the Gulf of Mexico, when warm, moist air from the Gulf moves over, or advects, atop relatively cool land.
significant ice did not form within Frobisher Bay until November 14 (Canadian Ice Service, 2005), and the combination of open water and southeasterly flow may have led to the formation of advection fog. Previous studies have shown that advective processes are responsible for a majority of the observations of Arctic fog (Rae, 1951).
