Appropriate site selection is critical

WeatherTec™ relies on natural processes to enhance rainfall using either orographic (above) or convective updrafts

Targeting locations for rain enhancement depends on understanding local atmospheric conditions:

  • Sites where orographic and convective clouds form (to provide the basis for the rain cloud)
  • Aerosol concentrations and sizes (to provide the charge transport medium)
  • Wind updrafts and cloud formation areas (to get the charge into the cloud)
  • Wind speed and direction (determines how far clouds travel before rain enhancement starts).
Selecting the appropriate sites is important for increasing rain in a target area
