  cloud physics, physics of clouds Wolkenphysik f.   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 Last updated Ma Cloud seeding can be done by ground generators, plane, or rocket This image explaining cloud seeding shows the chemical either silver iodide or dry ice being dumped onto the cloud, which then becomes a rain shower. The process shown in the upper-right is what is happening in the cloud and the process of condensation to the introduced chemicals. Weather Modification by Cloud Seeding. In preparation The book should be useful to graduates of a university program in any of the physical sciences or engineering, and to upperclassmen in those subjects. A review of basic cloud physics is provided to make the presen­ File Size: 8MB.

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.

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 It was first published inwhich worried me a bit since it means that some of the information is out of date or incomplete.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.

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.

Version. Weather Technology. (Book Reviews: Cloud Physics and Cloud Seeding; Radar Observes the Weather). Cloud physics has achieved such a voluminous literature over the past few decades that a significant quantitative study of the entire field would prove unwieldy.

This book concentrates on one major aspect: cloud microphysics, which involves the processes that lead to the formation of individual cloud and precipitation particles. Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 5. The Second Woods Hole Conference on Cloud Physics, June, was devoted to the subject Physics of volume contains the papers which were presented during the sessions as well as the edited discussion remarks.

Cloud Seeding - Dick LaRosa InDoubleday published a book by Louis J. Battan titled "Cloud Physics and Cloud Seeding". InDover republished it unabridged, but changed the title to "Cloud Physics: a popular introduction to applied meteorology".

Roughly the first two-thirds of the book covers the known science, beginning with basic thermodynamics of gases and extending to cloud physics, atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric aerosols, atmospheric-oceanic circulation and coupling, fluid dynamics, radiation absorption, emission, and scattering, the solar radiation spectrum, and thermal.

The goal of cloud seeding is to alter the natural development of the cloud to enhance precipitation, suppress hail, dissipate fog or reduce lightning. 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.
