Advances in Solar‐Driven Hygroscopic Water Harvesting
The diverse structural designs and engineering strategies that are being used to improve the rate of the water production, including the design principles for sorbents with high adsorption capacity, high‐efficiency light‐to‐heat conversion, optimization of thermal management, vapor condensation, and water collection, are explored.

Delineation of Dew Formation Zones in Iran Using Long-Term Model Simulations and Cluster Analysis
Abstract. Dew is a non-conventional source of water that has been gaining interest over the last two decades, especially in arid and semi-arid regions. In this study, we performed a long-termExpand
Radiative sky cooling: Fundamental principles, materials, and applications
Radiative sky cooling cools an object on the earth by emitting thermal infrared radiation to the cold universe through the atmospheric window (8–13 μm). It consumes no electricity and has greatExpand
Progress and Expectation of Atmospheric Water Harvesting
Summary Even if people live in an arid desert, they know that plenty of water exists in the air they breathe. However, the reality tells us the atmospheric water cannot help to slake the world'sExpand
A review: dew water collection from radiative passive collectors to recent developments of active collectors
AbstractDew water is water droplets formed due to condensation of atmospheric water vapor on surfaces of temperature below its dew point temperature. Dew water can be seen as a nonconventional sourceExpand
Produire de l’eau en milieu aride : solutions alternatives issues de l’étude des écosystèmes
Water nets and passive dew collectors are characterized by low production costs, but their productivity remains limited and depends on meteorological conditions, so they must be regarded as helper solutions for the most vulnerable populations. Expand
Production d'eau potable par condensation passive de l'humidité atmosphérique (rosée)
Le travail de these a pour objectif d'estimer precisement la quantite d'eau que l'on peut esperer collecter par la rosee dans le village cotier de Mirleft, situe au sud d'Agadir (Maroc), de laExpand
Research progress on water uptake through foliage
Abstract Leaf is one of the most sensitive organs that response to atmospheric environment changes. In arid region, especially under water stress conditions, water from foliar uptake is one of theExpand
Factors determining the concentration of nitrite in dew from Santiago, Chile
Dew was collected in Santiago City at different locations and over different surfaces. High pHs (ca 7.0) and nitrite concentrations were observed in all the samples, irrespective of the location ofExpand
Study of dew water collection in humid tropical islands
An assessment of the potential for dew water to serve as a potable water source during a rainless season in a humid tropical climate was carried out in the Pacific islands of French Polynesia. TheExpand


An optical method of dew estimation
Former methods of observing dew were based mostly on the direct weighing, before and after exposure of a hygroscopic material. The optical method consists in identifying the appearance of dew withExpand
