Cloud-seeding project of Karnataka takes off at Jakkur Airfield
Karnataka has launched the much-touted cloud seeding project named Varshadhare.
How does it work?
Cloud-seeding is a technique used to increase precipitation in clouds.
Cloud-seeding aims at catalysing the process of precipitation, so that rainfall could be increased by 15-20% in drought-affected areas of the State.
By introducing impurities such as Silver Iodide, Potassium Chloride and others, the objective is to ensure that the size of the droplets is large enough to fall down as rain.
