She answers the question: What are we really trying to do when controlling vapor? Topics include products we buy vs. what we need to achieve, molecular diffusion, four ways to address condensation, the role of surface area and type, inward vapor drive, reservoir cladding, and much more. Christine is a rockstar. Tune in.
