Abstract
Third Partial Report: A decision was made to conduct a number of tests where it was believed that thick super-cooled stratiform clouds would be formed systematically by the lifting of moist maritime air over a high mountain barrier. The particular area chosen for the tests reported here was in the vicinity of the Donner Pass of the Sierra Nevada Range, northeast of Sacramento, California. Seeding experiments were conducted there during the months of February, March, and April 1949.
Fourth Partial Report: In further pursuit of information concerning the artificial production of precipitation from cumulus clouds, tests were carried out during May and June 1949 in the Gulf States area near Mobile, Ala. These tests are a continuation of those conducted by the Cloud Physics Project in Ohio in 1948. The experiments in the Gulf area seemed necessary to show if the results of the Ohio tests were in any way influenced by the particular type of cloud encountered there.
