Abstract

Operational programs of rain enhancement usually face great problems in the evaluation phase, mainly because of the nonexistence of appropriate control clouds to match the seeded clouds. TITAN is capable of proposing up to nineteen candidates for each seeded case, but these potential control clouds are determined using variables rates and, therefore, present big differences in the initial conditions. A model (the H-model) is presented in this paper to deal with the size problem.
