Abstract

This review article shows flaws of current anti-hail protection methods and networks for hail prevention and suppression controlled by weather radars, which are unable to detect hail generative clouds and predict hail for timely start-up available anti-hail protection facilities. It is discussed as well advantages of new approaches in hail generative clouds high probable detection and classification based on radiometric observation of the sky and measuring changes of sky intrinsic emission in radiofrequencies, which allow implementing hail early detection and timely alerting anti-hail protection facilities and creating fully autonomous and automatically operating global networks of anti-hail protection applicable for hail prevention, hail sufficient suppression and hail trapping.

Keywords: Hail; Hail Detection and Alerting; Anti-Hail Protection; Hail Prevention, Hail Suppression; Hail Trapping; Supersonic Cannon; Weather Radar; Sky Brightness Temperature; Microwave Radiometer
