Abstract:

The recurrence frequency of fog events on annual, decadal, seasonal and fortnightly basis of eastern Uttar Pradesh, Faizabad district were made from long period average data of 1986-2015.

In terms of percentage of fog frequency during second fortnight (1986-2014), 37 % frequency of occurrence of fog above the normal was recorded in November, 48 % in December and 44% in January and in month of February it was 68%.Total 33% fog occurrence was recorded in first decade (1986-1995) 38 % in 2nd decade (1996-2005) i.e. 5% increase as compared to first decade then after decreased to 29% in 3rd decade (2006-2015) hence indicated that fog occurrence was oscillating between 29% to 38%. December and January months were recorded higher days of fog occurrence in each decade. In the decade 1986-95, out of total, 32% fog days occurred in December, and 30% in January.
