Public Law 92-205 requires that all non-federally sponsored attempts to modify the weather be reported to the Secretary of Commerce. Responsibility for administering a reporting program on behalf of the Secretary was delegated to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1972. A year later, Federal agencies agreed to report their weather modification activities to NOAA. Thus the reporting program has become the single, authoritative repository of information on weather modification projects carried out in the United States and its territories.
