Knowing where to find reliable information quickly is essential.
The article noted some interesting findings about the engineering profession:
- Typically, an engineer gains 83% of the knowledge they need in the workplace
- An engineer spends about 25% of their work week, or nine hours, using "external information"
- About 4.5 hours per work week are spent collecting the information
Sasha Gurke, the article's author, stated: "Readily available and authoritative information is especially critical during the innovation process."
This is exactly the need addressed by the Atmoswater Research website. I want to make information and knowledge about the still developing field of water-from-air technologies easily accessible—the searching and validating is done by me. Some information is freely available to any visitor to the site but some is premium content reflecting the additional effort that goes into producing the content.
Water-from-air equipment supplier websites vary considerably in quality—some show a need for accurate information. Typical problems include:
- Using non-standard temperature and relative humidity values for referencing water production rates
- Displaying relative humidity maps as the primary guide to regions where water-from-air technology is effective
- Referencing pseudo-scientific water properties
