Cloud physics and cloud seeding by Louis J. Battan Download PDF EPUB FB2

I've bought/read several textbooks, and when I was looking at others I found this little book. It was first published inwhich worried me a bit since it means that some of the information is out of date or incomplete.

This book is still a good introduction to cloud physics, cloud formation, cloud condensation nuclei, and ice nuclei.4/4(1). In this book, Dr.

Battan tells how the meteorologist collects and analyzes data to increase his understanding of atmospheric phenomena. He explains the structure and growth of clouds from minute condensation nuclei to the familiar cloud forms, and he describes the formation of rain, snow, and hail.

Battan believes that the findings of meteorological research will not only lead to more Format: Hardcover. Read this book on Questia. Cloud Physics and Cloud Seeding by Louis J.

It is an understatement to say that people are confused about cloud seeding. While it has been called "the crime of the century" and outlawed in Pennsylvania, the governments of the dry, western part of the United States continue to spend tax revenues on cloud seeding to increase water supplies.

Cloud seeding is a type of weather modification that aims to change the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds by dispersing substances into the air that serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which alter the microphysical processes within the usual intent is to increase precipitation (rain or snow), but hail and fog suppression are also widely practised in.

This book concentrates on one major aspect: cloud microphysics, which involves the processes that Cloud physics and cloud seeding book to the formation of individual cloud and precipitation particles.

History of cloud seeding: Rainmaking has its roots in when American scientists Vincent Schaefer and Bernard Vonnegu at General Electric (GE) successfully seeded a cloud with dry ice and got. • the scientific foundation for weather and climate modification by cloud seeding.

This book bridges Russian and Western perspectives of cloud physics. Khvorostyanov’s involvement in the evolution of the Russian school of cloud physics includes development of cloud models with spectral bin microphysics and applications to cloud seeding and cloud-radiation interactions.

Cloud seeding is a type of weather modification that aims to change the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds by dispersing substances into the air that serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which alter the microphysical processes within the cloud.

In the USSR began using cloud seeding have been doing basic research in all aspects of cloud physics and weather control though to date they have not launched in cloud physics.

In th cloud physics research Soviet and Western scientists have been following. While the physics differs in cloud seeding with ice nuclei and with condensation nuclei, both seeding methods have the same legal issues.

Earlier History It is commonly stated that cloud seeding was invented in by employees of the General Electric Research Laboratory. This "fact" is wrong. Cloud seeding had its beginnings in at the General Electric Research Laboratories in Schenectady, New York.

Cloud seeding can assist nature in the formation of precipitation, with appropriate types and numbers of nuclei at the proper times and places. Cloud seeding projects have been carried out in over 20 countries. Operational Cloud Seeding Projects in the Western United States.

The physical concepts of weather modification were developed and tested in the mid 's by Vincent Schafer and Bernard Vonnegut. Since that time, many projects have come and gone. Some were based on less than scientific concepts and others had strong scientific basis. The Federal Government has supported the continued research Cited by: 1.

Cloud condensation nuclei or CCNs (also known as cloud seeds) are small particles typically µm, or 1/th the size of a cloud droplet on which water vapor condenses. Water requires a non-gaseous surface to make the transition from a vapour to a liquid; this process is called the atmosphere, this surface presents itself as tiny solid or liquid particles called CCNs.

Within months of Schaefer's discovery and subsequent flight tests of cloud seeding with dry ice, Bernie discovered another seeding method using silver iodide. Unlike through Schaefer's experiments, Vonnegut's discovery was the result of book study (a basic chemistry text) and some tinkering.

It is impractical to modify weather by competing directly with the energies prevailing in the atmosphere, except locally ().Best () points out that to evaporate 1 km 2 of a cloud m deep containing g m −3 of liquid water would require × 10 18 erg. This calculation neglects the additional heat required to raise the temperature of the air to accommodate the extra water vapour.

A strange series of coincidences led Langmuir and Vonnegut to believe cloud-seeding was more efficacious than it really was. A mischievous font of synchronicity confounded their scientific.Covers essential parts of cloud and precipitation physics and has been extensively rewritten with over 60 new illustrations and many new and up to date references.

Many current topics are covered such as mesoscale meteorology, radar cloud studies and numerical cloud modelling, and topics from the second edition, such as severe storms.

Silver iodide (AgI) is not the only way to seed clouds to enhance precipitation. Nature seeds clouds to enhance precipitation using illite and similar minerals found in dust. These act in a manner very similar to AgI.

If nature already does it, on.
