Abstract
During the Po Valley Fog Experiment 1989, 2 fogwater collectors were operated simultaneously at the ground and the results were compared to each other. The chemical analyses of the samples as well as the collection efficiencies showed remarkable differences between both collectors. Some differences in the solute concentrations in the samples of both collectors could be expected due to small differences in the 50% cut-off diameters (5 < d 50 < 7 µ m). The large differences in the collection efficiencies however cannot be explained by these small variations of d 50 , because normally only a small fraction of the water mass is concentrated in the size range of 5-7 ...
