Coastal California Owes Much to its Famous Fog

Rolling coastal fog is part of the fabric of life near the Pacific Ocean.

Alicia Torregrosa, a physical scientist and fog researcher with the U.S. Geological Survey, recently discussed fog's ecological and economic importance in a talk title "The Value of Coastal Fog -- It's More Than Meets the Eye" at USGS headquarters. Watch the video online.
