Can you make an artificial hurricane?
MIAMI — Researchers trying to figure out what makes some hurricanes strengthen into catastrophic monsters have a new lab that allows them to generate tropical storm conditions with the flip of a switch.
Can man create cyclones?
Can humans really manipulate the weather? No, says climate scientist Professor Andy Pitman from the University of New South Wales, particularly when it comes to controlling large weather systems like storms.
Can hurricanes be seeded?
The use of cloud seeding to alter a storm was not a new idea — in fact, a weather modification program known as Project Cirrus accomplished the first cloud seeding of a hurricane back in 1947. However, instead of using silver iodide, this project experimented with dry ice as a method of seeding.
