Abstract

Within the past three years, the weather modification programs in Texas have occasionally used hygroscopic flares as a complement for glaciogenic cloud seeding operations. Introduced at an exploratory level, those dual seeding (hygroscopic plus glaciogenic) operations have been systematically evaluated using TITAN in an attempt to obtain evidence of possible greater impacts on storm radar signals than those obtained only using AgI flares. This article presents a summary of those evaluations.
