Quick Note: Fog

January 4, 2012

Here is a bonus Quick Note for today. This linked article, “Fog Harvesting Projects Hit The Big Time,” described efforts to recovery water from fog. The article appears on the co.exist portion of, and tells us “Fog harvesting, a technique used by nature and ancient civilizations to wring water out of the air, is getting a second look as modern technology tackles an age-old problem. Drought-parched communities around the world are running out of options.” [italicized sections are emphasized by me to show quotations from the source]

Apparently fog harvesting is a big deal:

Now, the research is getting more serious, with organizations such as the nonprofit FogQuest dedicated to fog and rain harvesting in rural areas. It has set up projects in Guatemala, Ethiopia, Nepal, Eritrea, and Chile, where the first first large-scale applications of this technique were built in the late 1980s.
