Abstract:

During the development of the methods of the artificial causing of precipitation, as under the influence on other weather processes, main condition is at present the detection of those components of the process of the formation of the precipitation in which, with the aid of microeffects, it is possible to obtain macroscopic effect. This condition is caused by the facts that energy of precipitation-forming processes considerably exceeds the energy possibilities of contemporary technical means. The difficulty of developing the effective methods of the causing of precipitation is caused also by the facts that the question concerning the mechanism of the natural processes of precipitation formation still distant at present from solution.
