Weather Modification Operations


This paper is designed as a review of the legal activities and maneuvers involved in the weather modification programs in the Texas Panhandle.  In order to appreciate some of the legal problems one needs to become familiar with the legal concepts that are brought to play......  In the final analysis, it is fairly certain that the scientific facts justify weather modification as a worthwhile and desirable activity despite the arguments of the opposition.  Further, present legal theories do not act as stumbling blocks or as impossible hurdles.  The forces of political pressure in Texas seem to be more than the light hearted can effectively cope with.
