Abstract

Weather modification operations continued in 2009 over the state of Texas. During the 2009 season, a total of seven projects were operational in Texas conducting rain enhancement and, in one project, hail suppression operations. Operations for 2009 were very good over the western projects but rainfall and seedable conditions over the south was below average due to a prolonged drought. Most of the state was dry, with the exception of West Texas and parts of the Panhandle.  This paper will serve as an update for the Texas projects in 2009, offering a comprehensive summary of each of the operational projects in the state. Additionally, this paper will provide an analysis of the Texas projects conducted by Active Influence and Scientific Management.
