Hailstorm data from a fixed network for the evaluation of a hail modification experiment
Hailfall data collected from a fixed network in northeastern Colorado during three seasons (1960-62) included the estimated impact energy, duration of hailfall, most common stone size, maximum stone size, and number of stones per square inch. These basic data, X, along with the transformations; ln X, √X, ∛X and 1/X were analyzed by computer methods to determine which parameters could be used in a statistical analysis of hail suppression experiment. The gamma distribution function was fitted to the hailfall data by the method of maximum likelihood. A chi-square goodness of fit test was applied ...
