Declining fog in coastal California?

The rich, lush environment of Point Reyes, and really all of coastal California, heavily depends on the fog. During rainless summers, this fog, which can account for 1/3 of the ecosystem’s water input, is critical to the persistence of the local plants and ecosystem. But recent studies have indicated that the fog is declining from the California coast. Join me as I talk to Bay Area experts, including Todd Dawson at UC Berkeley and Mike Vasey of SFSU, to find out more. Video features beautiful time-lapse photography of fog by John B Weller.
