Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Camanchacas are cloud banks that forms in the coast of Atacama Desert and moves inland. On the side of the mountains where this cloud bank forms, it is a dense fog that does not drop any rain. Scientists have devised a fog collection system of polypropylene netting to capture the water droplets in the fog to produce running water for villages in these otherwise desert areas.
