Dubai is witnessing scorching heat to the extent that the temperatures have surpassed 50 degrees Celsius at a point. To battle this heat, the United Arab Emirates’s (UAE) National Center of Meteorology came up with a solution that resulted in monsoon-like rainfall in the country.
Scientists have used the method of cloud seeding to make it rain.
Cloud seeding is a process where the clouds are made to clump together to start precipitation. This technology, used to enhance precipitation, generates electrical charges prompting clouds to coalesce and produce water.
The UAE is one of the first countries in the Gulf region to use cloud seeding technology, the National Center of Meteorology said. A version of the concept is used in at least eight states in the western U.S., according to The Scientific American.
