anyone know more about this particular tarp condensation technique or where its being used? and/or your fav extremely sick lo tek innovations and interventions!
Cannot point to specifics at the moment but this group publishes the coolest shit on low-tech solutions: https://www.lowtechmagazine.com/

King shit anon. I
I'm not sure I'm in the right climate for condensation tarp stuff. Is that suited more for more temperate or tropical areas?
seems like it should work anywhere theres any amount of dew, which is like most places i think? you just gotta knock it down before the sun evaporates it all off again so probably requires an early morning round with a handful of tennis balls or sticks and a solid throwing arm

Moisture farming. It's being increasingly used in very hot and usually dry environments like around the Med, both African and southern Spain, where they just started realizing they could retrofit those awful massive greenhouses into moisture farms (but there are still many idiots over there who just won't, because).
It appears to be working by trapping soil moisture under a tarp that blocks humidity while creating a condensation effect with solar heating. A good way to make relatively clean water, even tho it might take long.
Pretty inefficient in other hemispheres as it seems to require a lot of solar heat.
