Here is a description of an idea about the performance of desalination and irrigation (see attachedsketch).It is according to nature's principle to separate the salt and in the simplest embodiment; there is noneed for artificial energy input or maintenance demanding expensive equipment or evenmaintenance to speak of.The construction cost can be relatively high due to distance and size, but it should be compared withcosts for conventional large-scale desalination plants.A major benefit would also be that there will be no disruptions in ocean salinity, sea air is passed onlysideways rather than to rise naturally.You need to find a suitable site with different levels like a natural sink / valley and a mountain whereyou make a rock cavern.Moisture Saturated sea air enters via the intake or more sophisticated via a glass tank whichpreheats the air so that the air can take more water molecules.The sun heats the pipe and makes the air start to rise, that causes a suction effect at the inlet, whenthe air gets heated more sea water is possible to be brought in line.The easiest way is with solar-powered pumps that spray in seawater at appropriate locations alongthe climb. Excess water runs down and keeps the line clear of salt precipitation and more. Themoisture laden air in the line with the distance X is heated further, and any remaining salt and otherimpurities are precipitated. Diaphragm or cloths are avoided thanks to the purification of nature.The moist air enters the cooler mountain room or a masonry / cast chamber that is covered overwith earth and begins to condense. To avoid a resistance that stops the air flow, the air leads downinto perforated pipes in the ground.First coarse and then gradually to be finer. The ground folds remaining moisture out. The pipes in theground may be of non-polluting plastic or earthenware. The effect could be strengthened withhydrogel clumps suitably located around the line and root systems of trees planted (hydrogel isalready used to help plants to become established in dry areas).When night comes the moisture is precipitated out of pipes and collected in a tank at a low point,according to the sketch.The cool moist air also drops down into the channels in the soil; the soil warmed up during the daycools down a little and more moisture is precipitated.Moisture precipitated in the rock shelter / chamber can be used for irrigation and drinking water.When vegetation has established itself the local area will be a bit cooler because the plants absorbenergy, and the cooling effect depending of transpiration / evaporation /photosynthesis, plants alsoprovide moisture and shade.
