  • Mason T Charak National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Rockville, MD


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been delegated responsibility for administering a weather modification reporting program under Public Law 92-205. The law requires that all non-Federally sponsored attempts to modify the weather be reported. Federal agencies also report their weather modification activities to NOAA under interagency agreements. Since 1972, the reporting program has become the single, authoritative source of data on weather modification projects carried out in the United States and its territories.
