Abstract

Data on fog and rainwater collection were collected by building large residential-type fog collectors at a selected house located in the mountainous region of the Dhofar area, in the southern part of the Sultanate of Oman, during the monsoon season between 4 July 2006 and 3 September 2006. Three different types of screen material were tested: aluminium shade mesh, green plastic shade mesh and aluminium solid plate. The aluminium shade mesh collected by far the most water, followed by the green plastic shade mesh. The total collection of the aluminium solid plate was relatively insignificant.
