CLOUD SEEDING
Is “Any technique carried out with the intent of adding to a cloud certain particles that will alter the natural development of that cloud” (according to the Glossary of Meteorology). The ultimate aim could be to enhance rainfall, decrease hail, disperse fog etc.”

SAWS have historically been at the forefront of cloud seeding technology worldwide. Orsmond Aerial Spray has been and is currently involved with this process since it started. Resources both in terms of personnel and equipment currently in OAS and the Climatology Research Group from the University of the Witwatersrand represent a formidable package of expertise for conducting scientifically sound cloud seeding for water resource management purposes. As water becomes an increasingly scarce resource globally, the need for such services and expertise will continue to grow. An OAS and the Climatology Research Group from the University of the Witwatersrand partnership will form the perfect environment from which these services will be provided to local and international clients. The project in the UAE represents an example of how these products may be offered.

AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT
These services can be offered for both Monitoring and Research.
Atmospheric processes are a key consideration for the effective management of the air as a valuable resource. Human activities increasingly impact on these processes with far reaching adverse impacts, including poor air quality and climate forcing. The aircraft research facility provides a state-of-the-art means with which to evaluate important atmospheric processes. Within OAS and the Climatology Research Group from the University of the Witwatersrand, the joint capabilities of equipment and personnel will provide the means for innovative and ground breaking atmospheric research for both air quality management purposes and climate studies.
