Fog collection is the process of obtaining water from atmospheric moisture using man-made devices such as fog fences. Fog fences are typically large linear surfaces made from materials such as canvas, mesh, or woven wire that can capture droplets of water through condensation. The water then runs down the fence to be collected in a trough or container located at the bottom of the fence. Fog collectors are useful in that they take advantage of existing climate conditions and require no external energy to operate. They are ideally located in mountainous areas near the ocean where fog is common and rainfall limited.
