I don’t know how much physics this post has, but I found it interesting!
Mayor Yry Luzhkov, of Moscow, is promising that the citizens of his city will have a snow free winter.
This weather modification technique use air crafts to spray the clouds with silver iodine and dry ice, which alters the path of the precipitation. Although it may seem expensive, the cost of the project would save far more money then if snow plows and salts would need to be dispatched throughout the city.
IN THE UNITED STATES:
- 2/3 of the states have laws against cloud seeding.
- Cloud seeding is used on ski lifts to produce more snow.
- Cloud seeding is also used to limit the effects of fog in larger cities.
