“Caligo” Biroscape #230


The presence of a mild flow from the south generated by a reinforcement of the African subtropical anticyclone gives rise to “Caligo”, a Ligurian dialect term, which defines a condition that verifies where the sea surface is cold, so as to cool, as much as possible, the low layers of the atmosphere immediately next to the surface of the sea. The sea water on contact with the mild air flowing over the surface evaporates and tends to condense rapidly thus forming tiny droplets of steam; if the air temperature reaches the dew point the fog is formed that is pushed on the coasts by sea breezes.
