What would you like to do?
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.
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
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.
Cheese Whiz :D
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.
salt and fine sand
Salt and fine sand. :D
it makes it precipitate
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
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.
Clouds are generally seeded with sliver iodide and dry ice, but salt is being experimented with.
No, rain is a natural phenomenon, and natural phenomenon cannot be stolen.
Cloud seeding requires clouds and in hot countries such as Egypt or Africa. I doubt there are any clouds so i would say no cloud seeding is not for hot countries.
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.
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)
the use of hygroscopic materials, such as SALT. 1.what is hygroscopic materials? -it is the ability of a substances to attract and hold water molecules from the sourrounding …environments.
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.
