Cloud seeding, or weather modification, is believed to change the amount or type
of precipitation that falls from clouds, by dispersing chemicals into the air that
serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which alter the microphysical
processes within the cloud.
“We are asking to join the other 47 counties in the state who do not try to modify
their weather,” Neshem said. Ward County, home to Minot, is one of seven left in
a seeding program in the state. The others are Bowman, Burke, McKenzie,
Mountrail, Williams and part of Slope.
