Sustainable Water from the Air

An air well or aerial well is a structure or device that collects water by promoting the condensation of moisture from air.

Another system is fog or dew collection. Here, the moisture already coming out of suspension in the air is simply collected and encouraged to aggregate by structures or coatings which alternate hydrophilic^ and hydrophobic^ surfaces. The water collects on the surfaces which attract water, and when that space is filled, will "overflow" or run off that surface and not stick to the surfaces which repel water. Efficiency improvements of over 10 times are said to be possible over standard surfaces.

Air carries more water as temperature increases. For example, at 80'c 1kg of air will be saturated with about 0.26 Kg more water than it will at 30'c.
0.03 Kg/m3 of vapor at 30'C and 0.29 kg/m3 at 80'C
