Abstract

Coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) distribution and foggy conditions are causally linked by some authors. Others suggest fog is of little importance to the distribution of coast redwood because stratus, not fog, is more typical of weather conditions in these areas. Limited fog/stratus data from adjacent northern Californian areas with and without redwood are compared in this paper. Areas with redwood had more frequent early morning and early season stratus cover, but the frequency range within the redwood zone was substantial; fog was infrequent in both areas. This suggests that fog/stratus may not serve as a dominant factor for redwood distribution.
