Government report (two volumes combined into one) is illustrated with associated statistical charts, diagrams and photographs from actual weather control experiments, and is indexed. This is the primary evaluation of this controversial program, providing a detailed statistical evaluation, highlighting experiments in cloud seeding techniques, hail suppression, including results from weather control tests done over South Dakota, Arizona, Montana and Florida. Also explained are issues regarding the overall evaluation of the program itself, containing objective considerations of Project Skyfire, Project Overseed, Project Seabreeze and others, as well as information on seedability studies of various cloud types, measuring techniques, manufacture and use of silver iodine, special radar evaluation, cloud electrification, and special equipment used. The Summery of the Committee's Findings and Recommendations, suggests that while future research in meteorological control should be encouraged, ways to commercially license operators, and safely limit legal liability still need investigation.
