  The YouTube video From Thin Air features the FogQuest effort to provide drinking water from fog with manufactured fog-collecting screen sails and gutters below.. Efforts are underway to improve the efficiency of such fog sails by basing their design on the skin of fog-harvesting Namibian beetles (Stenocara gracilipes). 6There are a number of different fog-harvesting beetles in the dry, yet fog. Ethiopia Fog Collection Pending Project. FogQuest has been approached by the Mt. Zuquala Monastery (Ethiopian Orthodox Church) to provide a fog-water supply for the monastery.

The small town of Villa Lourdes in Peru has no access to running water. Three times a week they are visited by a truck from Lima delivering water, and in the height of summer fields were arid and bare until they began harvesting the daily fog for water. Using large nets they built 'Atrapanieblas', nets that turn fog into water, so that they could irrigate their fields.

Through a process known as condensation, atmospheric water vapour from the air naturally condenses on cold surfaces into droplets of liquid water known as dew.

Fog harvesting efficiencies were found to be highest during the spring and summer months, and lowest during the winter months. The average water collection rates during the fog seasons in Chile and Peru were and l/m 2 /day, respectively; the lengths of the fog seasons were and days, respectively.

Feasibility and sustainability of fog harvesting The sustainability of a fog collection project depends on the persistence of the clouds that flow over the mountain where the site is located.

Particularly in the case of coastal sites, these cloud decks are produced as a result of large-scale meteorological and oceanographic features, which one has reason to believe have been Cited by:   The beauty of fog harvesters, explains Boreyko, is that they take very little effort.
