Abstract:

Set forth briefly in the article are the results of the seeding of supercooled clouds and fog over large areas using solid carbon dioxide as the reagent. The experiments have established the possibility of dissipating clouds and fog over such areas under definite meteorological conditions. The technique of seeding used to dissipate clouds and fog over local areas was mainly used for this purpose. In addition a number of perculiar features were noted in the technique of seeding clouds over a large area. Results of experiments on the dissipation of supercooled fog from the ground using solid carbon dioxide as the reagent are presented. A description of the various types of apparatus used to introduce the reagent into the fog is presented. The results of the conducted experiments indicate a workable possibility for applying the developed technique to dissipate supercooled fog from the ground to meet the needs of aviation. Author
