Indonesia will cope with floods through cloud seeding

March 6, 2013. Usually such as Modification Technology "seeding cloud "is used to increase the amount of rainfall in a particular area where there was no rain for a long time. However, in Indonesia, is often affected by floods and landslides during the rains, we decided to use a geoengineering approach, on the contrary, to deal with excess rainfall.

Meaning of technology of cloud seeding is that in the very rainy cloud launching a special substance that can be condensation nuclei, altering the microphysical processes within the cloud. Usually people use substances that trigger prolapse precipitation, but in
