An Overview of the Activities on Cloud Seeding Experiment in Korea

Sung-Gil Hong, Won-Geun Eom

Abstract


In Korea, a cloud seeding experiment was conducted using a ground-based AgI generator and an aircraft dry ice dispenser in 1963 and 1964. That experiment was discontinued due to technical problems. In 1994 and 1995, a severe drought hit the Korean Peninsula. The Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) decided to again start a cloud seeding project for precipitation enhancement. The Meteorological Research Institute (METRI) started experiments April 1995, using a CN235M airplane of the Korea Air Forces to conduct airborne seeding operations.
