“The salt was dropped over the Sunda Straits and nearby areas such as Lampung [province] and the Ujung Kulon National Park on the southern coast of Banten,” said BPPT Weather Modification expert Jon Arifian on Monday.
“The operation to minimize rainfall is perhaps the last of its kind, as the BMKG [Meteorological and Climatology Agency] reported no build-up of rain clouds or other extreme weather.”
The BPPT have been carrying out the operation since February 21, following BMKG reports of extreme weather over Jakarta, West Java and Banten, at the end of February. The floods in Jakarta displaced over 1,380 people from their homes.
The weather modification operation is a joint initiative between the BMKG, BPPT, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency. The Indonesian Air Force provided logistical support for the operation, as its planes were used to spread salt to divert the rains from Jakarta.
