What is cloud seeding
Cloud seeding is a technique that increases rainfall in a target area. Hydro Tasmania has been involved in both experimental and operational cloud seeding over Tasmania and mainland Australia since 1964. In this time we have developed a great deal of knowledge and expertise in the area.
Our cloud seeding operations are conducted from 28 April to 31 October when conditions are suitable. Find more information on what we describe as ‘suitable conditions’ in our frequently asked questions download, plus much more information about cloud seeding, there is also a video producted as part of the ABC's Catalyst tevelevision program available for viewing below.
