Development of precipitation efficiency hypotheses for seeded and natural cumulus clouds using results from a weather modification experiment

Gerard Klazura

Abstract


A conceptual model based on basic cloud physics reasoning has been combined with the results of a summer cloud seeding program (Project Cloud Catcher) to formulate hypotheses of precipitation  efficiency in cumulus clouds. The hypotheses describe the dominant physical characteristics or mechanisms which are responsible for  the efficiency with which a cloud system (seeded or unseeded)  precipitates.
