Abstract

Using a simple drop-freezingt echnique as in earlier studies, the ice nucleationa ctivitieso f certain iodide and iodate systems, with and without soluble salts, have been investigated. It has been found that, of the systems tested, the iodide systems commonly used in the conventional cloud seeding, which are AgI.NaI and AgI.KI, are the least active. Also, the iodate system used in the pyrotechnic seeding, which is AgIO3+KIO3, is not the most active. Better nucleating systemsh ave been namedf or possible use in both the types of seeding. The comparativea ctivities noticed of the systems tested have been explained on certain qualitative considerations
