Quantifying ice nucleation by silver iodide aerosols
Laboratory studies of artificial ice nucleating aerosols used for weather modification by cloud seeding have generally been inadequate for describing their complex action in the varied temperature, pressure humidity, and cloud conditions that can be encountered in the atmosphere. This study provides a quantitative framework for predicting ice formation by aerosol particles based on experiments which specifically target currently accepted mechanisms by which ice can form. A physical system for reproducing realistic atmospheric cloud conditions, the Colorado State University dynamic (controlled ...
