Abstract

In this work we present an analysis of the characterlstics of storms in the Middle Ebro Valley that have not been seeded. The object is to have this for comparison with future seeded data from a hail suppression project. For this we have used radar images, adhering to a criteria of observation, to classify the storm types. Our sampled data was submitted to rigid statistical guidelines, permitting us obtain the measured values of the variables such as: area traversed, average life time, maximum reflectivity and heights at the moment of reaching peak values.
