“Amazing, the news channel and public themselves witness the flooding in Mumbai and BMC is preparing for Artificial Rains. Yet again after the failure of cloud seeding trial process implemented on Modak Sagar and Tansa River, which got failed in 2009, Mumbai BMC has planned another attempt of getting artificial rain by the same cloud seeding process to cope up with the low level of fresh water lakes in Mumbai..”
Cloud Seeding Trail Back in 2009
Process To Be Carried in 2014
IMD will have their special High-Tech radars installed in city. These radars are capable of detecting correct group of clouds for Aerosol seeding process. It can give much exact information about the density of cloud, Compositions and how much will be the size of water drops that will fall upon inside targetting area (lakes). Upon directions by IMD radars the Aircrafts will take their moves of seeding / spraying ‘Silver Iodide Aerosol’ which is done from top of those selected clouds, which will ultimately pour artificial rain in city. Complete activity will be monitored and examined to make sure project be a success. Just to add upon a note, Cloud seeding is also done with other Chemicals and things like Dry Ice, Potassium and Sodium chloride as found information around web.
