It is entirely logical that solar radiation has been considered a promising source of energy for the production of fresh water from salt water. In the first place, substantially all the fresh water which exists on the earth's surface is produced by solar evaporation of sea water in the familiar natural process. Water, vaporized from the seas by the absorption of solar energy on the ocean's surface, is carried by the wind over the surface of the earth, condensed to rain or snow as a result of temperature changes, and deposited on the ground where it eventually drains back to the sea.

Item Type: Book
Additional Information: This is the fourth of a series of reports designed to present accounts of progress on saline water conversion with the expectation that the exchange of such data will contribute to the long-range development of economical processes applicable to large-scale, low-cost demineralization of sea or other saline water.
