Summary of Several Radar Echo Studies for Weather Modification Application in Illinois
AbstractInformation is provided on the spatial and temporal distribution characteristics of squall lines and squall areas, which are the preimary warm-season rain producers in lllinois and the Midwest. The distribution characteristics of individual echoes (single echoes) were also determined with respect to important echo properties, such as duration, average area, total area, average and maximum rain rates, and total rain flux. Next, a similar study was made of initially equivalent pairs; that is, pairs likely to be selected as target and control convective entities in cloud seeding experiments. Differences were evaluated through computation of the frequency distribution differences between selected pairs for key echo properties, such as listed above. A fourth study investigated the relationship between echo height and echo characteristics pertinent to evaluation of cloud seeding experiments.
