Summary:
It is suggested that applying heat directly to a rain cloud, or to a ndoist air mass with rain potential, may alter the natural precipitation in a given geographical region. The immediate effect of the heat is to increase the buoyancy of the cloud or air parcel. The result, which depends on a number of interrelated factors may be either to cause precipitation where it would not naturally occur, or to suppress  Read more...

Abstract:

It is suggested that applying heat directly to a rain cloud, or to a ndoist air mass with rain potential, may alter the natural precipitation in a given geographical region. The immediate effect of the heat is to increase the buoyancy of the cloud or air parcel. The result, which depends on a number of interrelated factors may be either to cause precipitation where it would not naturally occur, or to suppress precipitation where it would naturally occur. Several possible applications are suggested. Since the heat supplied is supplemented by the latent heat resulting from condensation in the moist air mass, the results may more than justify the cost. However, substantial amounts of heat are involved. The heat can be supplied from fossil fuels, nuclear reactions, or a combination of both; but the logistics favor the use of large nuclear reactors wherever safety criteria can be met. Not only the efficiency and economics of the process, but also its feasibility, can be finally decided only on the basis of information that is not now available. (auth).
