3% of the world area. Spray off California nearly doubled rainfall in the droughtstricken region of central Australia and caused a smaller increase in the Southern part of the Amazon basin.

Other workers [10] have used treatment over much wider areas and have not observed similar effects. In particular, Bala [19] has found the net effect for the Indian subcontinent of widespread long-term cloud albedo control was slightly lower precipitation but a slightly greater run off from the Indian subcontinent because of slower evaporation of ground water in lower temperatures. Another result from [10] is that cloud albedo control carried out well away from the Arctic can reduce the rate of Arctic ice loss and so might prevent an irreversible tipping point.
