Notes on This Section

This section represents a considerable effort on the part of the volunteer staff of FogQuest to provide an archive of original reports and published papers related to fog collection. In many cases, it is likely that no other copies of the reports are available. We do not endorse the statements in each document or the conclusions reached by the authors.

Visitors to this site should make their own critical examination of the results and conclusions. This is especially true of non-peer-reviewed documents such as theses and institutional reports. Several lengthy lists of references on fog collection can also be found elsewhere on the FogQuest website.
