World Water Day: Fog and dew keep Africa's Namib Desert ecosystem going

National Science Foundation - Wed, 03/22/2017 - 13:00

Fog, seen here receding in the morning, comes and goes quietly in the Namib Desert.

The ocean is not the sole source of the fog that sustains life for numerous plants and animals living in Africa's coastal Namib Desert. The fog also comes from groundwater and other sources, report ecohydrologists supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and affiliated with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).

The scientists conducted the research in one of the world's oldest and most biologically diverse deserts. Their results are published today in ...
