California Professor Awarded Grant To Harness Water From Fog

A California State University, Monterey Bay professor will receive a substantial grant from the Defense Department to find methods to harness fog.

The $266,589 gift will fund research on ways to use mesh-based devices to collect water circulating in fog, according to CSUMB. The DoD is interested in the study to collect usable water for drinking or irrigation, which may be useful for military personnel in remote foggy regions.
