2 PERSONNEL REQUIREMENTS National, state, and local laws should be consulted to determine whether personnel in control of operations are required to be certified. Many of the duties required of operational hail suppression personnel require special knowledge and skills. The state in which operations are planned should be contacted. Some of the specific skills required of various project personnel are discussed in this section. The Weather Modification Association (WMA) has established processes for the certification of weather modification operators and managers (www.

Guidelines for Operational Hail Suppression Programs FIGURE 4-9 Weather radar installation. ) wavelength facility located in Stanley, North Dakota. The antenna and pedestal are housed within a fiberglass radome that allows operation to continue even in strong winds. The building is air-conditioned to provide comfort to the electronics and project staff. An auxiliary power unit provides power when commercial service fails Source: Courtesy of Darin Langerud. 2 Remote Sensing It is now possible to obtain useful information about storm development and the near-storm environment in real time, without having to enter the cloud itself or its immediate vicinity.

After the weather briefing (if operations are not under way), duty assignments for the day are made by the operations director. The balance of the operational period is then spent waiting for clouds presenting a hail threat to the target area to develop or for operations to be called “down” for the day. Because forecasting is an imprecise science, most operational programs, especially those that conduct operations around the clock, never formally excuse operational personnel from their assigned duties for fear of missing unforecast hail threats.
