Fog water flux at a canopy top: Direct measurement versus one-dimensional model

A one-dimensional model [Lovett, 1984. Rates and mechanisms of cloud water deposition to a subalpine balsam fir forest. Atmospheric Environment 18, 361–371] to quantify fog water deposition was compared with results of long term (13 months) measurements of turbulent exchange with the eddy covariance method at a mountainous site in Central Europe.
