CFACT: Cold Fog Amongst Complex Terrain


CFACT is a field campaign that investigates cold fog formation in mountain valleys.  The overarching goals of the CFACT project are to 1) investigate cold fog development and environment conditions in complex terrain with the latest observation technology, 2) improve microphysical parameterizations and visibility algorithms used in numerical weather prediction (NWP) models, and 3) develop data-assimilation and analysis methods for current and next-generation (e.g., sub-kilometer scale) NWP models. The CFACT field campaign will be conducted in the Heber Valley region of Utah, during January and February 2022. The deployment of a network of ground-based in-situ instruments and remote sensing platforms will help to obtain comprehensive measurements of thermodynamic profiling, cloud microphysics, physical and chemical properties of aerosols, and dynamics of the environment.
