BENEFITS OF FOGGING
Most of all the time we talk about fog systems, where, how and why we could use it. Yes fogging is the best thing for our crops in greenhouses, fogging is the best way for cooling and etc. Today we want to Show you other side of “FOG”. You know earth has a problem nowadays which will be the biggest prolem ahead: “Global Warming”.
- What does fogging do to solve the global warming?
- Which feature of fog playing the big role against the global warming?
Do you know the people who lives in the arid regions they have only chance to get the fresh water. – We call it “FOG”
Fogs have the potential to provide an alternative source of fresh water in dry regions and can be harvested through the use of simple and low-cost collection systems. Captured water can then be used for agricultural irrigation and domestic use. Research suggests that fog collectors work best in locations with frequent fog periods, such as coastal areas where water can be harvested as fog moves inland driven by the wind. However, the technology could also potentially supply water in mountainous areas if the water is present in stratocumulus clouds, at altitudes of approximately 400 m to 1,200 m (UNEP, 1997b). According to the International Development Research Centre (1995), in addition to Chile, Peru, and Ecuador, the areas with the most potential to benefit include the Atlantic coast of southern Africa (Angola, Namibia), South Africa, Cape Verde, China, Eastern Yemen, Oman, Mexico, Kenya, and Sri Lanka.
Fog harvesting technology consists of a single or double layer mesh net supported by two posts rising from the ground. Mesh panels can vary in size.
The collectors are positioned on ridgelines perpendicular to prevailing wind and capture and collect water when fog sweeps through. The number and size of meshes chosen will depend on the local topography
Note: We also could use it in our greenhouses. Think about it wouldn't it be nice to use it like water for our little crops after fogging?
