Investments to create artificial rain in the United Arab Emirates have begun to yield results. The project had major consequences as it began to affect the clouds.
The United Arab Emirates said it had invested $15 million in nine different sprinkler projects in 2017 to prevent 50-degree temperatures in Dubai and the country’s drought. On Sunday, the United Arab Emirates’ National Weather Service shared images of heavy rains. According to the shared images, heavy rainfall caused shale to form while driving conditions were so intense that they could be affected.
To increase the amount of precipitation and produce rain, the new system is carried out by drones giving electric charge to the clouds. In this way, raindrops in clouds, such as the ability of static electricity to draw together, combine to create weight and land.
Today, artificial rain production can also be done by firing silver iodide-type chemicals into the clouds. However, the operation to electrify the clouds is known as a more reliable method because it does not require the use of any chemicals. The United Arab Emirates is slowly beginning to see the pace of investment, and this method is thought to shed light on the regions of the world struggling to cope with drought.
