Abstract

An orographic cloud seeding experiment conducted in the vicinity of Climax, Colo., has been continued for five additional wintertime periods from 1965–70. A comparison of this new independent information is made with previously discussed wintertime operations of the experiment from 1960–65. As a whole, agreement between these independent data sets is good. In particular, the agreement in temperature and wind partitions is consistent with a previously reported model which describes seeding effects under various physically defined conditions. These comparisons have been made using pooled groups of precipitation sensors having similar elevations and locations.
