  19. A dense watery vapor exhaled from the earth or from rivers and lakes, or generated in the atmosphere near the earth. There is a constant ascent of watery particles from the surface of the earth occasioned by the evaporation from masses of water and moist bodies; and when the air is saturated with vapor the watery particles which continue to rise are no longer dissolved, but remain suspended in vesicular vapors, which form clouds when they rise to a great height and fogs when they hover near the surface of the earth. Fogs are more frequent at those seasons of the year when there is a considerable difference of temperature in the different parts of the day. " Have sucked up from the sea contagious fogs." " Hover through the fog and filthy air."- Shak.
