Fifth year of Oman trial consolidates results – consistent enhancement, higher probabilities.

Estimated enhancements and associated confidence levels with increasing numbers of trials.

Australian Rain Technologies (ART) is pioneering statistical analysis to enable commercially effective decision-making in the area of rainfall enhancement. This statistical methodology is being applied to ART’s own ATLANT™ rainfall enhancement through ionisation technology. However it is equally applicable to chemical cloud-seeding, which has been hampered by inconclusive trial analysis for 70 years.

In particular the University of Wollongong has applied this analytical method across multiple trials of ART’s ATLANT™ ’ rainfall enhancement through ionisation technology in Australia and Oman. (See summary in Statistical Methodology and full description of methodology in trial reports in Resources)

In all cases rainfall enhancement was identified at high levels of statistical confidence. Enhancement ranged from 10 per cent (90 per cent statistical confidence level) in three trials in South Australia to 18.8 per cent enhancement with 99.99 per cent statistical confidence level) in five trials in Oman. This is the fifth consecutive year that has returned an estimated enhancement effect of 18 per cent or more.

There was a 99.5 per cent probability that enhancement was more than 10 per cent in Oman 2013-2016. ART is now in the final year of a six-year trial program in Oman 2013-2018

Such results, if repeated in multiple locations throughout the world, would represent a major complement to current expensive and unpalatable water supply augmentation methodologies.

We have spent nine years putting together a world-leading spatial statistical and econometric evaluation team as we pursued our path to rigorous demonstration of efficacy.

We have learnt from 70 years of frustrating and often contradictory traditional weather modification trials since World War II.

We hope this website leads you to share our keen appetite for providing applicable results from rainfall enhancement trials. And for investigating ATLANT™’s potential in all areas of water shortage around the world.
