  • Ray Jay Davis University of Arizona College of Law Tucson, Arizona


International law is developed by customary conduct by nations with respect to each other, decisions of international tribunals, treaties, and resolutions of international organizations. Although no nations have sought decisions from international tribunals because of weather modification activities, there have been interenational agreements on weather modification such as PEP and the Canadian-United States weather modification activities information exchange memorandum of understanding. Also scholars have written of the possible application to transnational weather modification impacts of principles of international customary law and from decisions of international tribunals and courts.
