Abstract : The Navy is engaged in a continuing long term effort to develop weather modification techniques which will permit more efficient and effective naval operations. The first goal is to develop weather modification techniques of immediate application for the Navy. The highest priority at present is to make operational the seeding of supercooled fog or stratus. Next priority, is for the design of feasibility studies for a system of clearing warm fog; and the third priority is a long term investigation on a system to exert control over storm dynamics.
