Boe, 1988: Microphysical effects of wintertime cloud seeding with silver iodide
over the Rocky Mountains.
: A yellow powder that darkens with exposure to light.
His first paper on the subject used familiar military terminology to explain how a small amount of "nucleating" agent such as dry ice, silver iodide
, or even water could cause a "chain reaction" in cumulus clouds that potentially could release as much energy as an atomic bomb, but without radioactive fallout.
Gordon Burley (1954-1966) Silver iodide
, rain making, crystallography.
The image of the fingerprint is transferred to the silver plate as silver iodide
, which slowly turns black on exposure to light.
This is done by 'seeding' clouds with silver iodide
particles which the water vapour in the clouds freezes on to.
Today, either solid carbon dioxide or silver iodide
operation staff burned silver iodide
solution and directed it at overhead clouds using a large fan.
The photographic film is nothing more than plastic coated with a gelatinous mix of silver bromide and silver iodide
. These chemicals are light sensitive, and when the camera shutter opens, a latent image forms on the film.
An alternative approach involved silver iodide
dropped from an aeroplane into the cyclone clouds.
The thermochromism in salts like silver iodide
is also explained in similar lines.
Planes have sprayed a chemical named 'silver iodide
' on rain-bearing clouds in the last three days in the district of Bagalkot.
