Weather Modification Research


Like many nations in the world, Iran has limited availability of useful water for hydroelectric power generation and for agricultural and industrial needs.  The development of water resources is thus important to the overall economic progress of the nation.  One of the possibilities for improving the availability of water is the more efficient use of atmospheric water through a program of precipitation management....... The results of this preliminary investigation and design have shown that all of the elements for a winter orographic cloud-seeding program are present in this mountainous region of northern Iran.....
