A new analysis finds there are fewer foggy days along the Northern California coast than there were 100 years ago. That’s bad news for the venerable coast redwoods.
In addition to charting a reduction in the number of foggy days over the past century, U.C. Berkeley researcher Todd E. Dawson says their study also found fewer hours of foggy conditions on the days when the mist was present.
In their analysis, Dawson and his colleague, James Johnstone, found there was a relationship between drought years and fog conditions, but it’s not what one might expect.
