Water-from-Air Resource Annual Index
Water-from-Air Resource charts are available for three sites in the Azores (Portugal) representing three climate classes: Flores, Ponta Delgada, and Sao Sebastiao. Operating conditions for atmospheric water generators range from fair to excellent depending on location and season--see charts for details. Characteristics of the three sites relevant to water-from-air system operations are summarized in the following Table.
I have been researching and developing drinking-water-from-air technologies since 1984. As a physical geographer, I strive to contribute an accurate, scientific point-of-view to the field.
