"Taming the Sky - propeller of cloud physics research"

Presented by Lulin Xue, NCAR

Thursday, September 8, 2022, 11:00 am — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

The discovery of cloud microphysical responses to artificial ice nucleating particles by Schaefer and Vonnegut in the late 1940s set the stage for glaciogenic cloud seeding as a technology to increase water supplies especially in mountainous regions during wintertime. This talk provides a short review of the research related to wintertime glaciogenic cloud seeding under the background of aerosol-cloud-precipitation interactions at the beginning. Then, recent experiments and modeling progress that help to quantitatively assess glaciogenic seeding impacts on clouds and precipitation falling across a mountain watershed are introduced in detail. The recent development and advancement of laboratory facilities and experiments for aerosol-cloud research will be discussed at the end of the talk.
