The United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) National Center of Meteorology created a monsoon-like artificial rain to combat the desert heat. A drone technology known as cloud seeding has been used to create the enhanced rain. Electrical charges are used to enhance precipitation by coalescing clouds and generating water. Further, the country receives an average of only 100mm of rain each year.
In addition, experts have revealed that the technology is designed to produce rain in clouds more efficiently, resulting in more rain. Moreover, the cloud seeding method is suggested as a possible remedy for the water shortage.
