Ok, I know that Fog occurs in the cold due to condensation of water in the air.
I know that Smog is an accumulation of Fog and Carbon stuff from the cars..

What causes HAZE to form.

It was real hot the other day and I saw a Haze over the area. Kinda wierd to me.

Haze - Fine dust or salt particles dispersed through a portion of the atmosphere which reduce visibility. Haze is distinquished from fog by its bluish or yellowish tinge.

Fog -A cloud based at the earth's surface consisting of tiny water droplets or, under very cold conditions, ice crystals or ice fog; generally found in calm or low wind conditions. Under foggy conditions, visibility is reduced to less than one kilometer

Smog ( contraction for 'smoke fog') is a fog in which smoke or other forms of atmospheric pollutant have an important part in causing the fog to thicken, and have unpleasant and dangerous physiological effects
