A further analysis of the 1967-74 Santa Barbara weather modification experiment data is in progress in the Department of Statistics, Florida State University. The present report provides a nonparametric covariance analysis, of limited scope, of the Phase I experimental data. The findings tend to confirm, qualitatively, the North American Weather Consultants conclusions of a demonstrable seeding effect under selected conditions of cloud instability and cloud temperature. Quantitively, however, the present findings are more restrained. The analysis tends to suggest the need for improved experimental designs. Author
