Do you know trees can water themselves with seasonal fog?! That is exactly what the trees in a rare cloud forest in the desert regions of Oman do! Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientists discovered this natural mechanism of the unusual watering process.
The study on this is made in a forest located in the Dhofar Mountains in the south of the Middle Eastern country. Clouds here are found to form in the forest when moist air flows in from over the Arabian Sea, and pushing up against the mountains. Water droplets from the clouds that collect on the trees’ leaves fall to the ground — where it can be stored and used by the trees in drier weather.
