salt seeding

A form of cloud seeding in which salt particles are released into the atmosphere with the objective of increasing precipitation.

The salt particles are hygroscopic and readily condense water and grow large enough to become centers for coalescence growth of precipitation, or participate in the ice accretion process.
See cloud seeding, weather modification.
