Clouds With A Silver Lining
With changing climate and growing population, many are looking to "cloud seeding" to boost snowpack and meet water needs. A cloud typically only drops 5% of it's moisture. Inside every droplet or snowflake is a particle of dust that started the process. "Cloud seeding" introduces more dust into the process by using a generator to
burn silver iodide, which goes up in the air to start the growth of a crystal that eventually will turn into a snowflake. Generators are activated by meteorologists remotely based on factors such as wind speed, humidity, and temperature.
