Record warmest year third time in a row

NASA has declared this year to be the hottest year yet recorded. September turned out to be the warmest in modern temperature monitoring of 137 years. The recent findings follow record-breaking monthly anomalies throughout this year, leading the agency to believe that because of the highs reported so far. The first nine months of 2016, as […]

High Altitude Cloud Physics Laboratory

High Altitude Cloud Physics Laboratory (HACPL): The High Altitude Cloud Physics Laboratory (HACPL) was conceived in order to continuously monitor clouds at a single location, where the cloud base touches the ground. The idea of the HACPL was formulated to have long term cloud physics, dynamics, radiation and chemistry observations at one place as aircraft […]

Seeding Clouds to Spout Rain

Cloud seeding is a method of enabling inefficient clouds to bring rain, or enhance rainfall from a seedable cloud by introducing seeding material. The secondary effect of evaporation from falling precipitation improves the thermodynamic efficiency of the environment to form fresh convective clouds and more rain. This principle is used to enhance rainfall and reduce […]
