Legal Aspects of Weather Modification-Snowpack Augmentation in Wyoming


It has been only in the past twenty-five years that weather modification has gained recognition as a science. At the present time the legal aspects of weather modification have not been formulated by either the courts or the legislatures of the respective states. Professor Pierce discusses the progress of weather modification and expected scientific advancements, the various legal theories that have been suggested concerning property rights to clouds and the moisture therein, and problems of liability of the weather modifier. These problems and theories are then discussed as related to the specific area of snowpack augmentation in Wyoming.
