The A-8 Highway of Cantabria, along the section between Mondoñedo and A Xesta, province of Lugo, is often affected by dense and persistent fog that seriously reduces visibility. In this context, the study of said episodes of fog is of vital importance in order to improve knowledge thereof.

The project comprises several different phases: Detailed analysis of the data registered during previous years, the application of the most advanced knowledge regarding atmospheric physics in relation to the generation and propagation of fog, in order to characterise the episodes and thereafter to evaluate the possible techniques for the forecasting of future episodes.
