For the first time, researchers have used radar and other tools to accurately measure the volume of snow produced through cloud seeding.
What we learned:
- Researchers have used radar and other tools to measure the volume of snow produced through cloud seeding.
- They analyzed three different cloud seeding events in western Idaho, finding they produced a total of about 282 Olympic-sized swimming pools worth of water.
- The results could help states like Colorado and Idaho decide whether cloud seeding might be an effective tool for addressing water shortages.
