Project Stormfury - Attempt to weaken tropical cyclone S

Project Stormfury was an attempt to weaken tropical cyclone S, a joint venture of the United States Department, an ambitious, experimental program of research, begins Robert Simpson, had positive results. The Project was run by the United States Government. Hypothesis cloud seeding was attempted by first Vincent Schaefer. The eyewall replaces the inner one storm, was than the larger, old eyewall, was outside the the original, first one eyewall. Project Cirrus Project Cirrus was the first attempt to modify a hurricane. Airplane flew along the rainbands of the hurricane. The hurricane changed direction made landfall, stopped growing showed signs of weakening, was left for the next 24 hours. Defense research activity supported by the Advanced Research Project Agency. Joanne Simpson is Chief Scientist Emeritus for meteorology. The seasons provided no suitable seeding candidates, were in the inactive. The theory took cumulus towers outside the eyewall. Ginger was a suitable storm for seeding, the last seeding. Action required of the many, same safety requirements. Plans to operate Stormfury in the eastern north Pacific. Observations called the basis for Project Stormfury. Cloud seeding needed supercooled water to function the lack, to be the successful clouds. Science resulted in a greater understanding of tropical cyclones. Cuba n president Fidel Castro alleged that Project Stormfury. Simpson took a course in meteorology, earned a B, became the first woman to earn a Ph in 1949 and worked with the Project engineers. Eyewall cycle occurred in Hurricane Andrew before landfall. Modification was attempted in four hurricanes on different eight days. Stormfury years scientists seeded clouds in Hurricanes Esther. The idea was to seed clouds outside the eye wall, was that the silver iodide. The Stormfury hypothesis was to seed, the first rain band.
