Precipitation Enhancement—A Scientific Challenge by Roscoe R. Braham Jr.

By Roscoe R. Braham Jr.

This quantity had its starting place in a workshop held at Park urban, Utah, 23-25 might 1984. the target of the workshop was once to supply a chance for cloud physicists to evaluate the prestige of data and figuring out concerning the physics of precipitation formation in clouds and the reaction of clouds to glaciogenic seeding. All paperbounds have been through invitation. half the time used to be given to dialogue and debate sparked by way of four significant evaluate paperbounds and 14 brief reviews. restrict of the workshop to medical elements of glaciogenic seeding for precipitation enhancement was once intentional.

Radiative Forcing Of Climate Change

Alterations in weather are pushed by means of average and human-induced perturbations of the Earth's strength stability. those weather drivers or "forcings" comprise diversifications in greenhouse gases, aerosols, land use, and the volume of power Earth gets from the sunlight. even if weather all through Earth's background has different from "snowball" stipulations with international ice disguise to "hothouse" stipulations while glaciers all yet disappeared, the weather over the last 10,000 years has been remarkably solid and favorable to human civilization.

He does think that CO2 is inflicting a few warming yet lays out a cogent method of deal with the problems.
