Atmospheric moisture extraction removes water vapor from air for drinking, cleaning, and other uses.

Some foggy neighborhoods in Lima, Peru are using "fog nets" to harvest moisture as an alternative to scarce natural rainfall.[1]

Two famous fictional depictions are the moisture farms of Tatooine seen throughout the Star Wars films, and the "windtraps" described in the book Dune of Frank Herbert.
