The study of the flow and storage change of water vapor in the atmosphere above the Colorado River Basin is used to interpret the results of cloud seeding experiments. Particular interest is placed on the type of meteorological condition which favors successful cloud seeding. The problem of evaporation from the basin is studied from the point of view of water augmentation through cloud seeding.
