Physical response of winter orographic clouds over the Sierra Nevada to airborne seeding using dry ice or silver iodide

, : Physical response of winter orographic clouds over the Sierra Nevada to airborne seeding using dry ice or silver iodide. Journal of Applied Meteorology 29(4): 288-330

Cloud seeding experiments in shallow stable winter orographic clouds were conducted in the central Sierra Nevada of California from 1984 to 1986 with dry ice or silver iodide at temperatures between -6 degrees and -14 degrees C. A trajectory model was used to target seeded precipitation to the ground where the surface instruments were deployed.

In summary, the following points are made: 1) There are essentially two approaches to seeding for rain inducement, static and dynamic. 2) The dynamic approach is effective in inducing growth and increasing precipitation from individually seeded co...
