dc.description.abstract Fog that reduces visibility to the point where aircraft have to divert to another airport is not uncommon at Abu Dhabi International Airport (ADIA) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Over the period 1982 to 2003, the average annual frequency of fog at ADIA was 38 nights a year, the highest being 56 in 2000 and the lowest 23 in 1992. Fog is defined as occurring when water vapour in the atmosphere condenses into minute water droplets and the horizontal visibility falls below 1000 m (UK Meteorological Office (UKMO), 1991). en_ZA
