Standard Fog Collector

Standard fog collector

The Standard Fog Collector (Schemenauer and Cereceda, 1994) is a 1- meter square frame with a double layer of 40% shade cloth mesh.  It is set up perpendicular to the prevailing wind direction.  The collected fog (and rain) water is routed from the collection trough to a large-capacity tipping bucket gage with data logger to measure amount and frequency of precipitation.  The cylindrical "harp" type fog collector is seen in the background.
