Abstract : The patent discloses an apparatus and a method for dispersing weather modification nuclei. The apparatus comprises a blower, a feed hopper for containing dry particles of the weather modification material and feeding them into the path of gas coming from the blower, a dusting chamber in which the particles are separated from one another and a heated tube through which the particles pass, are vaporized, and from which the vapor is dispersed into the atmosphere where the vapor reconstitutes itself into weather modification nuclei.
