Contents Notes
This report summarizes the findings and conclusions drawn from a survey which was conducted at Alaskan bases. The purpose of the survey was to secure information necessary for making recommendations on the nature and level of effort of research programs which could be directed toward minimizing the disruptive effect of ice fog on air operations at Eielson Air Force Base. The ice fog phenomenon, its principal causes at Eielson, and the nature and extent of its effect on air operations are discussed. An examination is made of engineering approaches to the solution of ice fog problems and their influence on the apparent trend during the past ten years toward a decreasing frequency of occurrence. A recommendation is made for engineering designed to minimize pollutions from what is considered to be the primary source. Finally, there is a discussion of the feasibility of establishing an applied research program designed to provide operationally useful solutions to the ice fog problem. (Author).
