Title (EN) HURRICANE MITIGATION BY COMBINED SEEDING WITH CONDENSATION AND FREEZING NUCLEI
(FR) ATTÉNUATION DE L'INTENSITÉ D'UN OURAGAN PAR ENSEMENCEMENT COMBINÉ AVEC DES NOYAUX DE CONDENSATION ET DE CONGÉLATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides method for treating a tropical cyclone, a tropical storm or a tropical depression. The method includes reducing unloading of cloud parcel water in the tropical cyclone, tropical storm or tropical depression. In a preferred embodiment, unloading of cloud parcel water is accomplished by seeding with cloud condensation nuclei, such as sub-micron ammonium sulfate particles. The treatment is preferably applied to the lower parts of peripheral clouds in the tropical cyclone, tropical storm or tropical depression below the 0 C isotherm level.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé destiné au traitement d'un cyclone tropical, d'une tempête tropicale ou d'une dépression tropicale. Ce procédé consiste à réduire la quantité d'eau déchargée par un ensemble de nuages dans le cyclone tropical, la tempête tropicale ou la dépression tropicale. Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, l'ensemble de nuages est déchargé de son eau par ensemencement avec des noyaux de condensation du nuage, tels que des particules de sulfate d'ammonium submicroniques. Le traitement est de préférence appliqué dans les parties inférieures de nuages périphériques du cyclone tropical, de la tempête tropical ou de la dépression tropicale, en-dessous de l'isotherme de 0°C.
