Abstract

In 1978, legislation was passed in California which provided for State regulation of all weather modification activities e×cept agricultural frost protection. The new law went into effect in October 1979. State licenses were required for individuals authorizing them to design and conduct weather resources management projects. State permits were needed by persons or organizations to conduct specific weather resources management projects in California. The permits set forth the conditions under which individual weather modification project activities could be conducted, including suspension criteria in the interest of public health and safety.
