Cities can modify rainfall - a new concept
Keywords:Weather Modification Research, Impacts of Human Activity
AbstractSeveral climatic studies during the past 100 years have shown that cities develop their own special internal climate, being warmer and less windy than rural areas. A few key climatic studies of the past 10 years found that cities may also produce effects on clouds and precipitation that extend several miles out from the city. Unfortunately, these challenging discoveries could not define adequately the true magnitudes, in time and space, of these precipitation anomalies because the desired records in and around most American cities are too sparse or just not available, lhey also could not specify how these complex atmospheric processes were being altered, but the possibility brought a new dimension to weather modification.....
