Seeding the Clouds

CU Boulder researchers have begun a three-year project to generate more winter snowfall in southwestern Idaho with the aim of producing greater river runoff for Western hydroelectric dams.

Using aircraft, the scientists will seed clouds with silver iodide to stimulate snowflake formation and measure effects.

The experiment is called Seeded and Natural Orographic Wintertime Clouds — the Idaho Experiment, or SNOWIE. Supported by the National Science Foundation, it also involves University of Wyoming and University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign researchers.
