A High-level Atmospheric Management Program Plan for the New Millennium


  • T P DeFelice


The recent renewed interest in the field of weather modification has led to the conception of the following high-level national program plan designed for implementation during the new millennium. It is conceived that any atmospheric management program plan, whether it is as laid out in this paper or otherwise, must pursue a comprehensive agenda of fundamental and applied research and development efforts directed toward the goal of optimizing the technologies used to manage atmospheric processes and conditions. The Atmospheric Management Program (AMP) described in this paper would contain tasks organized under five activities: Atmospheric Modification Monitor/ Analysis Prediction System Development, Glaciogenic and Non-Glaciogenic Seeding Technology Research/ Development, Applications Research/ Development, Atmospheric Modification Professional Development/ Public Outreach, and Program Management and Support.
