Application of the CART and NFIS Statistical Analyses to Fogwater and the Deposition of Wet Sulphate in Mountainous Terrain
Between 1985 and 1991, the Chemistry of High Elevation Fog (CHEF) experiment was conducted on three mountains in southern Quebec, Canada. The CHEF project was linked with the Mountain Cloud Chemistry Project (MCCP) in the Appalachian Mountains of the USA. Measurements were made of liquid water content (LWC) as well as standard meteorological parameters (temperature, pressure, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction and precipitation).
