Abstract

Weather modification in Taiwan has been going on for more than 20 years, which makes it one of the longest continuously running operation projects in the world. The three goals of the program are enhancement of precipitation for hydroelectricity, agriculture, and drought-relief. Evaluation efforts using simple least squares regression indicate a 44% increase. Recent aircraft seedings to relieve short droughts aroused considerable public interest.
