Abstract:

This patent is on a system for automatically sampling fog-water at a known rate, for determining the electrical conductivity, and for retaining fog-water samples for additional related study. The conductivity of the collected water is used to estimate total salt content of the fog andor air, which determines the availability of salts to act as the condensation nuclei for fog and haze.
