On the Contrastive Nature of Weather Modification Knowledge: Commonsense Reasoning and Commonsense Knowledge


  • Arquímedes Ruiz-Columbié Active Influence & Scientific Management San Angelo, TX


Weather Modification specialists constantly face a difficult problem in their operation and research tasks. The explanation of events on the basis of data is neither completely deductive nor completely inductive. The reason is clear since it is very difficult to isolate the weather objects from their environment and their complex interactions; therefore any attempt of methodological isolation tends to destroy vital elements of their dynamics. Here I present a discussion about the role abductive inference plays in applied weather modification knowledge due to its contrastive nature, and how these general considerations are applied in Texas.
