This is a term used to describe the mixture of smoke and fog.
Smog occurs when high concentrations of moisture is combined with smoke
(often containing oxides of sulfur and nitrogen) in the presence of
high temperatures or thermal inversions and the absence of wind. These
conditions cause polluted air to stagnate over industrial areas and
can create a respiratory health hazard. Large coastal industrial centers
with surrounding high ground are more prone to smog. There is often
a diurnal (over a day) variation in the process of smog formation because
one of the necessary components for its formation is sunlight.
