Jalada (जलद) or Ghana refers to “clouds”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.22. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Once at the advent of clouds (jalada-āgama), Dakṣa’s daughter said to Śiva who was halting on the ridge of Kailāsa mountain. Satī said:—‘O lord of devas, O Śiva my dear husband, please hear my words and do accordingly, O bestower of honour. The most unbearable season of the advent of clouds (ghana-āgama) has arrived with clusters of clouds of diverse hues, and their music reverberating in the sky and the various quarters. The speedy gusts of wind scattering sprays of water mingled with nectarine drops from the Kadamba flowers captivate the heart as they blow’”.

Ayurveda (science of life)

Source: archive.org: Vagbhata’s Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita (first 5 chapters)

Jalada (जलद) (“water-giver, rain-cloud”), is according to the scholiasts a synonym of musta or mustā (“nut-grass”), and consequently has been reproduced by gla-sgaṅ (for which NP offer the unattested spelling bla-sgaṅ).

Source: Shodhganga: Edition translation and critical study of yogasarasamgraha

Jalada (जलद) is another name for “Mustā” and is dealt with in the 15th-century Yogasārasaṅgraha (Yogasara-saṅgraha) by Vāsudeva: an unpublished Keralite work representing an Ayurvedic compendium of medicinal recipes. The Yogasārasaṃgraha [mentioning jalada] deals with entire recipes in the route of administration, and thus deals with the knowledge of pharmacy (bhaiṣajya-kalpanā) which is a branch of pharmacology (dravyaguṇa).

Rasashastra (chemistry and alchemy)

Source: Wisdom Library: Rasa-śāstra

Jalada (जलद) or Jaladalauha is the name of a Ayurvedic recipe defined in the fifth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 13, Pandu: anaemia and Kamala: jaundice). These remedies are classified as Iatrochemistry and form part of the ancient Indian science known as Rasaśāstra (medical alchemy). However, since it is an ayurveda treatment it should be taken with caution and in accordance with rules laid down in the texts.

Accordingly, when using such recipes (e.g., jalada-lauha): “the minerals (uparasa), poisons (viṣa), and other drugs (except herbs), referred to as ingredients of medicines, are to be duly purified and incinerated, as the case may be, in accordance with the processes laid out in the texts.” (see introduction to Iatro chemical medicines)
