Do you mean the USA has "successfully" used cloud seeding for hurricane control? I only ask, because in another thread a poster claimed that
was proof of the Navy controlling hurricanes. I was interested in this
project, so I looked a little further into it. This project included a series of experiments using silver iodide to cloud seed a hurricane, with the
intention of condensing super cooled water within the hurricane and reducing its overall windspeed. It turns out that the experiment didn't actually
work very well.
Project STORMFURY, A Scientific Chronicle
STORMFURY itself, however, had two fatal flaws: it was neither microphysically nor statistically feasible. Observational evidence indicates that
seeding in hurricanes would be ineffective because they contain too little supercooled water and too much natural ice. Moreover, the expected results
of seeding are often indistinguishable from natrually occurring intensity
I would agree that the US has
tried to modify hurricanes, but it turned out that cloud seeding wasn't a very successful method to achieve
this. Of course, you could say that they might
have something better now, but that would merely be an assumption, unless there is some kind of
reasoning or evidence to back it up. I don't think the recent hurricane tracks are all that unusual, and since there are no radar images to look at
in the OP, it's impossible to say that it isn't just the way the radar processes it's images or radar malfunctioning.
are some examples (and explanations) of radar "rings" in Oz.
