Clouds in the Perturbed Climate System

William R. Cotton

The MIT Press

This chapter discusses the science of weather and climate engineering. It briefly reviews the concepts of cloud seeding through glaciogenic and hygroscopic seeding, and also discusses cloud seeding strategies that have been applied to increase rainfall, decrease hail damage, and reduce hurricane intensity. The chapter also provides a critical overview of the existing atmospheric concepts for climate engineering to counter greenhouse warming.

Keywords:   climate engineering, cloud seeding, glaciogenic seeding, hygroscopic seeding, rainfall, hail, hurricane, greenhouse warming
