University of Hawaii – Manoa

1. Juvik, James O. Mountain fog on Mauna Loa, Hawaii.

Degree: 2018, University of Hawaii – Manoa

Theses for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (University of Hawaii at Manoa). Geography, no. 974.

This study investigates the mountain fog regime on the windward and leeward slopes of Mauna Loa, Hawaii. Methodological approaches utilized in the study included: 1) development of a standardized louvered screen fog gage; 2) development of an indirect approximation method for estimating average droplet sizes during precipitation episodes and for separating the rain and fog components; 3) establishment of an extensive fog sampling network on the windward and leeward slopes of Mauna Loa; and 4) development of an original computer program for detailed temporal and spatial analysis of rain, fog and wind parameters. An analysis of mountain fog data for the period 1974 - 1976 yielded the following conclusions: 1) a well defined fog belt exists on windward Mauna Loa in the altitudinal zone between 1500 - 2500m; 2) on leeward Mauna Loa mountain fog increases with elevation up to at least 2000m, with fog amounts lower than at comparable elevations on the windward slope; 3) seasonal and altitudinal patterns in fog frequency and intensity are related to the dynamic interaction of the trade wind field (particularly the trade wind inversion)and the local land/sea breeze regime; 4) mountain fog appears to be a significant factor in the water balance of mountain ecosystems on Mauna Loa; 5) the potential for large scale mechanical recovery of fog water for domestic and agricultural water supply may be feasible for limited areas of the mountain slope.
