Abstract

Kogan and Trahtman [2003. The moisture from the air as water resource in arid region: hopes, doubts and facts. Journal of Arid Environments 53, 231¿240] analysed the functioning of a passive dew condenser built by F.I. Zibold in 1912 in Feodosia, and proposed a model to explain how thousands of litres of condensed water might be generated per day based on Zibold's design. In a previous publication, some of the present co-authors explained why it was not possible to obtain high water yields with Zibold-style dew condensers and that Zibold was apparently unaware that the stone heaps in Feodosia were in fact ancient Scythian and Greek tombs. Kogan and Trahtman [2003] take issue with our findings, thus the reason for this comment.
