The description is given of the modern conception and of technical means to carry out the weather modification activities in megalopolises using the active influencing methods. The main objective of these activities is the cloud dissipation and the decrease or cessation of precipitation on the territory under protection. Four influencing methods are commonly used depending on the synoptic situation. To carry out the meteorological protection activities, the airplanes are used equipped with the measuring equipment necessary to execute the influencing, the "land-aircraft-land" system of the radio data traffic and the cloud seeding means. The liquid nitrogen, solid carbonic acid, silver iodide, and coarse-dispersion powder are used as the cloud seeding reagents. To control the aviation activities and the results of cloud seeding, the ground automated radar meteorological complexes are used. © Allerton Press, Inc., 2010. Source

Some results of activities on cloud seeding operations to modify the weather conditions over metropolises are given. The main objective of these activities was to dissipate the clouds and to decrease or to stop the precipitation on the territory under protection during the political, cultural, or sporting events. Up to 12 aircraft specially equipped with the measuring equipment needed to carry out the cloud seeding, with the Land-Aircraft-Land radio data transmission system, and with the cloud seeding means were used to fulfill the works on the weather modification. The liquid nitrogen, "dry ice", silver iodide, and coarse-dispersion powder were used as the reagents for the cloud seeding. To control the aviation works and the results of the cloud seeding, the ground-based automated meteorological radar systems were used. The results of more than 40 large-scale operations on the improvement of weather conditions carried out since 1995 in different regions of Russia and near abroad indicate the efficiency of the methods and technical means of cloud seeding developed by the specialists of Roshydromet to modify the atmospheric precipitation. © 2011 Allerton Press, Inc.
