Abstract

Interest in weather modification in Santa Barbara County (County), California, USA dates back to 1950. This interest developed shortly after the discoveries of Drs. Schaefer and Vonnegut in the late 1940’s that established a scientific basis for weather modification (commonly referred to as cloud seeding). Two weather modification research programs have been conducted in the County. Numerous winter season operational cloud seeding projects have been conducted in the County dating back to 1950.
