Abstract : The results of computer simulation of both natural and modified cumulus clouds appropriate to the Panama Canal Zone were analyzed to derive tables of the probability of increasing or decreasing rainfall, the expected amounts of rainfall increase or decrease, and indices of potential yield arising from cumulus cloud modification. These tables are presented and discussed. (Author)
