    About "Tule Fog"
    Tule Fog is a type of radiation fog created when the earth's surface cools air near the ground to a temperature at or below its dewpoint, usually at night or in the early morning, and when the ground is moist or wet. Air pollutants are hygroscopic, readily absorbing moisture, and can act as condensation nuclei, causing the fog to be comprised of small droplets, rather than large droplets, resulting in denser fog, similar to that of industrial-era London. High concentrations of particulate matter from diesel exhaust, ammonia from dairying, incineration, and other pollution sources in the Valley help fog form more easily, and may make Tule Fog more frequent.
