MiniCASCC – A Battery Driven Fog Collector for Ecosystem Research

  title={MiniCASCC – A Battery Driven Fog Collector for Ecosystem Research},
  author={Pavel Michna and J{\"u}rg Schenk and Roland A. Werner and Werner Eugster},
We developed a small version of the Caltech active strand cloud water collector (CASCC) for biogeochemical investigations in ecological applications. The device is battery powered and thus allows operation at locations where mains power is not available. The collector is designed for sampling periods of up to one week, depending on fog frequency. Our new device is equipped with standard sensors for air temperature, relative humidity, wind, and horizontal visibility for fog detection with a low… CONTINUE READING
