Abstract:

The High Plains Cooperative Experiment sponsored by the Division of Atmospheric Water Resource Management of the Bureau of Reclamation is a large-scale project to study the feasibility of augmenting precipitation in the High Plains region by artificial means. In July 1974 a planning workshop was held in Vail, Colorado, at which intensive studies of the requirements for cloud modeling, measurements, and design and evaluation were made. One recommendation that came from the modeling sessions was that of the models developed by the various participants be tested with the same set of data, and that another workshop be convened to compare the results. This was done, and the modeling workshop was held in Denver on 11-13 June 1975. Approximately 14 participants presented results of their models. Data for two days, 10 and 17 August 1973, for the St. Louis region from Project METROMEX were provided. The remainder of the workshop was devoted to working up recommendations for observations to be made during the high Plains Experiment both for initialization and verification of the model.
