Abstract

During the period of the Nashville Community Air Pollution Study, the Weather Bureau at Nashville, Tenn., forecasted air pollution to be one of three levels for the following day. The forecast method was most reliable during the winter season when pollution ranges were high. Discrimination of air pollution levels can undoubtedly be improved through experience and further studies, and the method is general enough to be used at other locales.

Abstract

The design and conduct of HIPLEX-1, a randomized seeding experiment carried out on small cumulus congestus clouds in eastern Montana, are outlined. The seeding agent was dry ice, introduced in an effort to produce microphysical effects, especially the earlier formation of precipitation in the seeded clouds. The earlier formation was expected to increase both the probability and the amount of precipitation from those small clouds with short lifetimes. The experimental unit selection procedure, treatment and randomization procedures, the physical hypothesis, measurement procedures and the response variables defined for the experiment are discussed. Procedures used to calculate the response variables from aircraft and radar measurements are summarized and the values of those variables for the 20 HIPLEX-1 test cases from 1979 and 1980 are tabulated.
