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