Abstract:

The interrelation between field programs and atmospheric modeling is discussed in the context of studies of weather modification. In particular, numerical models of convective clouds are considered. It is shown how activities in both field programs and modeling affect decisions concerning each other, culminating in the use of models for day-to-day go, and no go decisions concerning the field programs. This talk was prepared for the Sixth Skywater Conference, sponsored by the Bureau of Reclamation in Denver, 10-11 February 1970.
