Fog deposition onto the cool-temperate deciduous forest in northern Japan was estimated by the inferential method using the parameterizations of deposition velocity and liquid water content of fog (LWC). Two parameterizations of fog deposition velocity derived from the field experiments and numerical simulations were tested. The empirical function between horizontal visibility (VIS) and LWC was applied to produce hourly LWC as input data of the inferential method. Weekly mean LWC computed from VIS had a good correlation with the one sampled by an active string-fog collector. Fog deposition calculated by the inferential method agreed with that computed from thorough fall data within the factors of 2 to 3. The results indicated that the inferential method using the current parameterizations of deposition velocity and LWC can provide a rough estimation of water input due to fog deposition onto cool-temperature deciduous forests.
