Observations of Natural, Seeding Beneath Anvil Clouds
AbstractNatural seeding events were observed during aircraft and radar observations of a moderate cumulonimbus storm. The storm produced a relatively large anvil which may have resulted from natural over-seeding of the p~rent cloud by ice pertic!es from the remains of an older storm which merged with the primary system. Ice particles from the anvil were incorporated into the top of a convective cloud beneath the anvil. Subsequently, rapid glaciation of the cloud top was observed followed by a substant.ial increase in the redar return from the cloud.
