Final Report-2002/A Weather Resources Management Program/A Summary of Cloud Seeding Activities Conducted over Six Counties in South Texas During the Period 15 March-15 November 2002
The Southwest Texas Rain Enhancement Association has now completed its fourth year of operations and the second full year of 24-hours a day 7-day per week seeding. This year was a year of ups and downs, with the season starting slowly, then becoming very active. The program performed almost 100 flights during the eight month season. The program has now focused on establishing a long-term weather modification program for the participating counties for many years to come. This year, the SWTREA in many respects again served as a demonstration program to many of the other weather modification projects in Texas by demonstrating effective rain enhancement and hail suppression seeding on any type of storm at any given hour of the day. We look forward to another aggressive seeding season in 2003.
