Abstract
The basis of a novel method for passive solar water heating homologous to the thermosyphon but driven by induced salinity which circulates a fluid without the necessity of a mechanical pump and with inverse natural convection is outlined. The \emph{brinesyphon} operates -as its homologous thermosyphon, by harnessing the tendency of a less dense fluid to rise above a denser fluid to cause fluid motion through a collector as in a thermosyphon, but with two exceptions: buoyancy is controlled by ind...
