Why is fog a lot thicker in some areas than others?

    Technically, a fog is a cloud that is touching the ground. It is denser than mist. Fog is created in many ways, all of which affect how thick a fog might be. For example, one of the most common types of fog, radiation fog, is formed by land cooling off after the sun sets. Heat conduction creates condensation in the air. Turbulence and winds can make this fog thicker. Another common type, precipitation fog, is formed when precipitation falls into drier air below the cloud, creating water vapor fog. The fog can be thicker based on how much precipitation is occurring. Other fog types form in different ways, with different variations of thickness.
