On 20 May 2015 at 13:00, Juan José Braojos (ex-civil servant of CIATFE) imparted the seminar entitled "A methodology to evaluate the fog water catchment potential and its exploitation: natural or man-made" at the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center's Offices in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. In this seminar, he summarizes his recently published technical book "The cloud, the pine and the other rain".
Mr. Juan José Braojos Ruiz is a technical civil engineer and a hydrologist. He started to work at Tenerife in 1972 when he joined the technical team of Canarias Project SPA-15. He has carried out his professional activity in the public administration, being the last organization in which he has worked the "Consejo Insular de Aguas de Tenerife". He has co-authored and cooperated in many studies and basic specific works.
Within the mathematical model of the Tenerife island surface hydrology that is used by the "Consejo Insular de Aguas de Tenerife", Juan José created a sub-model to compute the water contribution by fog water catchment, its spatial distribution as well as its impact in the refilling of the insular aquifer system. In January 2010, Juan José retired. The manager of the "Consejo Insular de Aguas de Tenerife" suggested him to write a book about that topic. At the end of March 2015, Juan José presented at the "Cabildo de Tenerife" his recently published book: "The cloud, the pine and the other rain".
The "Consejo Insular de Aguas de Tenerife" and Juan José Braojos gifted a copy of his book to each attendee of this CIAI's seminar.
