The Gulf region is one of the most arid regions in the world. The lack of water is considered as the most important problem. Annual rainfall is slight and erratic, with an annual average of 81 millimetres in Doha. As a result, renewable ground water resources are extremely limited and, in addition, there are problems with groundwater salinity. The atmosphere, endless source of water, contains a large quantity of water in the form of vapour in varying amounts especially in Gulf coastal region.
In this paper two methods of collecting water from the atmosphere are presented.
