Effect of the temperature spectrum of active ice nuclei on targeting of seeded orographic precipitation

Weather Modification Research, Instrumentation


Seeding a supercooled cloud or cloud system with ice forming nuclei marks the start of ice phase weather modification. The  characteristics of ice nuclei not only can be controlled within the  existing technology, but they also largely affect the results of  seeding. Weather modification research programs in general aim at  determining conditions for maximizing the physical effect, although  factors such as eco|ogical and economical problems have to be  simultaneously considered. Whereas, in actual operations,  optimization of the physical seeding effect will be pursued in  consideration with the overall circumstances.....
