How is cloud seeding done?
first, people fly a plane over the clouds, they spray salt over them, the water droplets in the cloud mix with the salt, and combine to make a large rain drop, and, last but not least, it rains.

Cloud seeding is a technique which has been studied and practiced since the 1940's. The science behind it is to drop ice forming materials, such as silver iodide or other …materials, into clouds to produce precipitation.
both, cloud seeding can cause floods,hurricanes, and tornadoes so that is bad, but on the other hand it is good because it causes places in droughts to have rain and it causes… farming areas to earn nutrients.
The advantages of cloud seeding are the possibility of creating rain in areas of need (drought), enabling food crops and the economic improvement of developing countries. …The disadvantages are the concern of chemicals on plants and animals, the amount of money it would take to deliver chemicals into the air, and the possibility of too much rainfall, resulting in flooding
Depends on how you do it, but the seed should be done in 12-48 hours. Basically When the shell of it has broken an you can start to see the white root thing coming out, althou…gh i like for them to be a lil bet longer than that u really shouldn't continue to germinate/soak them after it has cracked an spouted out of its shell.
There are many possible dangers of cloud seeding. Cloud seeding is dangerous because it forces unnatural changes in clouds by using chemicals that could harm the health the hu…mans.
People fly planes above the clouds and attempt to disperse Substances into the air to artificially Increase precipitation. They inject silver nitrate into the clouds either …by aircraft or smudge pots similar to what they use in orange groves when the temperatures drop below freezing to save the crops, but these do not use silver nitrate. Cloud seeding was popular in the 1970's to increase snowfall in the Rocky Mountains in order to produce more water for the western states and especially the Colorado River from which Las Vegas, Nevada, San Bernardino and Riverside California gets it water supply. However, it also caused increased snow and rain in eastern Colorado and Kansas, causing some areas to flood. Therefore it was stopped. Many other countries still use these cloud seeding methods.
It sometimes increases and sometimes decreases
When there is drought the crops die. Crops that we use for food, fuel, all sorts of products including livestock feed. If the crops die we have nothing to feed our poultry… and swine and beef. When there is drought we risk running out of steak and baccon. But with cloud seeding that is no longer an issue. We can irrigate our crops, we can cause it to snow when we want to go skiing and the weather just wont cooperate. we can slow storms and reduce the size of hail. We can clear fog from landing strips at airports. And unfortunately the U.S. has signed a treaty against it but think of the millitary applications.
dry ice and silver iodide! :)
yes, because it makes all the cloud rain to help the farmers when they are planting crops and plants..... They make the plants grow more easily or faster ..... By: Mz. FB
it helps out in beating drought and if we seed a cloud over ourwater catchments we will have more drinking water
The positive effects is that you could make a hurricane go somewhere else. The problem is that you might not always be able to control where it ends up.
Cloud seeding is done in the Philippines to offset or mitigate the effects of prolonged drought on agricultural areas(water stress) and watershed (reduction in dam level)
Cloud seeding can cause major weather storms. When cloud seeding releases silver iodide into the cloud it can cause humans to get diseases such as heart enlargment or amenia. …These diseases could cause you to have other symptons. Cloud seeding also cost alot of money which isn't good for our economy these days.
No, rain is a natural phenomenon, and natural phenomenon cannot be stolen.
Cloud seeding attempts to change the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds, by dispersing substances (e.g. microscopic silver iodide crystals, dry ice) in…to the air that serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei. The usual intent is to increase precipitation (e.g rain, snow), but hail and fog suppression are also widely practiced in airports. Cloud seeding substances may be dispersed by aircraft or by devices located on the ground (e.g. generators, anti-aircraft guns, rocket launchers). There are still questions as to its actual effectiveness and some of the substances used present possible health hazards.
