Abstract:

Research and analysis techniques and analyses in a basic research program of cloud physics, cloud dynamics, and cloud modification for convective clouds at Flagstaff, Arizona are reported. During the field program the sub- cloud layer and representative cumulus clouds of all sizes were probed and studied using a coordinated system of an instrumented, supercharged, twinengined aircraft, ground radars for tracking and meteorological studies, and a ground network of cameras and other instruments. Seeding was performed from a second aircraft, primarily the release of silver iodide particles from either a continuous burner or pyrotechnic Alecto devices.
