Sources of Water

So far, we have seen sources of water from two states, liquid and solid (frozen). We also have water from condensation bottled and sold. In Chile, fog forms on the shore and then moves inland in the form of cloud banks. The locals call it "camanchaca." Fog is basically tiny drops of water that are so light they don't yet fall as rain. Nets with very small mesh catch and accumulate the tiny drops into significant amounts of water in some of the driest places on Earth like the Atacama desert in Chile. Other places have begun experimenting with waters from clouds and fog, but there are no brands available right now outside a very local distribution.
