Horizontal interception of fog by vegetation






Silva Lusitana 6(2): 247-256

Horizontal interception of fog by vegetation

The occurrence of fog and the consequent degree of interception by the existing vegetation (fog drip) depends on the region. The fog drip phenomena is particularly relevant in arid and semi-arid zones where contribution to the precipitation can be significant.
