Abstract : Studies have shown the possibility of using artificial precipitation for extinguishing forest fires, and it has been subjected to broad experimental verification. The method of extinguishing forest fires with artificially-induced precipitation is applicable only when there is sufficiently thick convective cloud cover over the operations regions. Therefore, it is not universal and cannot be used as a substitute for ground methods. The proposed method is very economical.
