The aim of this study is to give a general description of fog frequency, as well as to indicate the potential role of pollutant deposition via fog in the environmental processes ongoing in the Carpathians. The annual number of days with fog (NDF) depends on altitude, station location in regard to circulation patterns and distance from the sea, terrain morphology at a given station site and in its wider neighbourhood. The large NDF observed in the Carpathians suggest that this region is characterised by an important additional potential water flux in the form of horizontal precipitation. Depending on land use, this could play an important role in pollutant deposition
