A group of about 60 scientists, technicians and university stu- dents from many parts ot Can- ada and the United States as- ing network. Precipitation samples are taken by a fleet of trucks di- rected by radio to intercept the storm path. These samples are analysed by the Desert Re- search Institute in Reno, Nev., sembled at the Alberta Hail Studies Project Centre, Cana- dian Forces Base Penhold, for concerted attack oa hail prob- lems. Hail causes estimated dam- age Of to to Alberta crops annually and since 1936 the Alberta Hail Studies Project has been gather- ing data in an effort to deter- mine causes and behavior of hail storms. This data led to the tests in cloud seeding. In cloud seeding, tiny part- cles around which hailstones form are injected into the cloud. Silver iodide seeding flares pro- duce up to of these minute nuclei a second, and the nuclei arc injected into a storm cloud. After a selected storm has been seeded for about 15 min- utes, it is observed closely by various teclmiques developed bv the Alberta Hail Studies Pro- ject. LOOK FOR EVIDENCE Evidence is then sought for a consistent chain of events through external visual and stereo cloud photography, through changes in !lic internal slorm structure as determined by radar and through changes Special Easier Music CHEC radio is to provide commercial free broadcasting Good Friday and Easier Sun- day on bolh AM and FM out- lets. Special programming has been scheduled for both, with the FM schedule in the after- noon slots, from 3 pm., offer- ing Easier classical music. Friday the presentations will include Polish composer Kry- stoff Penderecki's mod e r n work, the Passion and Death o! our Lord Jesus Christ Accord- ing to St. Luke, and Italian composer Rossini's S t a b a t Mater. Easter Sunday's program will feature oratorios by Bach and Schulz. The nighily Music Factory will not be affected. The AM schedule for the two days will highlight lighter music, commercial free, by well known artists such as Manlovani, Joe Stafford, Andy Williams and the big bands. where techniques ill be effective The experiments will comparison with unseeded a, M storms in an attempt to gain under greater understanding of what effect storm seeding can achieve.

The good visibility at the high alti- tude, the road grid, the high density of farms and espe- cially the radar and other fa- cilities at Penhold make this centre attractive to many groups. Several research teams from the United States have worked on the project during the last two years. The Meteorological Service of Canada also provides bread support to the project in the form of forecast services, personnel, instruments and other special services. The Na- tional Research Council has the Stormy Weather Group veloped and is continuing to im- prove the weather radar facili- ties of the project to the point where its unique features now make it one of the in the world for studying hail storms. Most of the analysis of the field observations arid the build- ing up of i theory of storms and hailstone growth is conducted of McGill Univeisity under con- tract to the Meteorological Serv- ice.
