Abstract

Silver iodide was emitted from ten burners from 09 to 13 CST on about half the days, randomly selected before the start of the five-month rainy season, June-October, south and southeast of Mexico City in 1974, 1975 and 1976. Five burners were of voltiac arc type, operating at approximately 2500 C; the other five used butane gas, burning at about 1,000 C. Neither type was calibrated, so no infor- mation is available on their output of freezing nuclei. On each seeded day, an average of seven burners operated, consuming 0.24 kg of Agl per day.
