There is no direct correlation to fog and pollution, apart from the fact that fog in and of itself causes particulate matter to remain airborne for longer in the absence of wind. So another words if it happens to be that pollution is being generated above normal levels during foggy conditions, the particulate count will rise exponentially until the fog clears. I’m sure there’s a way you could graph this out under accurate measurement. The only reason this is a common occurrence in Chengdu is indeed that we are both in a basin geographically as already mentioned, and suffering higher pollution counts on a regular basis.
