A method to obtain estimates of the volume of fogwater collected by a tree
canopy in complex terrain is described.
Included are assumptions about
the shape and spacing of the trees and their fogwater collection efficiency.
A key component is the use of a computer model for wind flow in complex
The fogwater volume results enable a mapping of wet deposition
patterns of acidic ions.
Fog chemistry data from the Roundtop Mountain
complex in southern Quebec are used for calibration purposes.
To evaluate the impact of cloudwater chemistry on high-elevation forests
in the Chemistry of High Elevation Fog (CHEF) project, Schernenauer*
suggested that estimates of the spatial distribution of ...
