As the plateau lies just above the same height as the stratus cloud deck of the eastern Pacific these clouds form as fog the main source of water along this cliff, and at certain pathways also into the Atacama.

 With the instruments at the site it will be tried to characterize the clouds at the coast for one year. They will provide cloud base and top height, liquid water content, vertical and horizontal wind, temperature and humidity. With the instruments at the site it will be tried to characterize the clouds at the coast for one year.

 Based on this data it will be possible to provide information on the occurence of fog in the past and under future climate conditions. Based on this data it will be possible to provide information on the occurence of fog in the past and under future climate conditions.
