Solidum sa panukala na cloud seeding sa apektado ng pagsabog ng Bulkang Taal: Mapanganib
SINABI ni Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) director Renato Solidum
na bagamat may benepisyo ang panukalang cloud seeding sa mga lugar na apektado ng ashfall dahil sa pagputok ng Bulkang Taal, may dulot naman itong panganib.
“It helps to wash down the ashes but sometimes people would feel the acidity…it’s very difficult to cloud seed,” sabi ni Solidum sa panayam ng Headstart.
Ito’y bilang sagot sa panukala ni Senate President Vicente Sotto III na magsagawa ng cloud seeding sa nga apektado ng ashfall.
“If the rain that would fall over the area is significant in volume, then you might loosen and erode many of the ashes downslope in steep areas, that will be converted to sediment-laden flood flows. If it is with so much solid (particles), it can become lahar. So there is danger also,” ayon pa kay Solidum.
Nauna nang sinabi ni Solidum na kailangan pa ng pag-aaral kaugnay ng panukala ni Sotto.
“It is very difficult to cloud seed when there are no clouds to seed. And in fact when there is an eruption you might notice that there is rainfall associated with it. As the acids themselves can be the seed of the rain,” ayon pa kay Solidum.
