David Delene, a UND atmospheric scientist, recently was awarded funding from North Dakota’s Centers of Excellence Commission (COE) to further improve understanding of how precipitation develops in clouds. His work could lead to more effective cloud seeding applications to reduce hail, enhance rain and conduct snow augmentation in parts of the world that need it. Photo by Shawna Schill.
