Water and AWE
- Dew on stored kite systems? Rot?
- Pull water-gen paravanes by kited wings.
- At sea or off-shore AWES.
- Rain and kiting systems.
- Get cooled water or ice from aloft.
- Use AWES to make hydrogen from water.
- Lift water by AWES to high storage points for storing potential energy.
- Lift water for releasing the same to fight fires.
- Use kite systems to release cooling mists over a region.
- Use water for travel by kite traction. Ship kiting. Kiteboarding. Kite foiling.
- Use kite system to lift dirty water to the tops of towered water filters.
- Use kite system to lift and release water over a group of people or animals to cool them.
- Use kite system to lift and release water to help area regrowth.
- Move water to animal watering holes by use of kite systems.
- Obtain water from altitude by kite; let the water return to ground by various means.
- Use kite system over broad dew-catching surface to sponge or scrape the dew water for animal or human use.
- Wing icing?
- Drag nets or other collector devices by kite to clean water or perform food harvesting.
- Water that is out of place in an AWES might destroy the
system. Electrical shorting? Corrosion? Fire? Electrocution or electric
- Damp tethers versus dry tethers?
- We take paravane systems as AWES; the flow media for wings is water.
- Traction by kite over water ice ...
- Traction by kite over snow ...
