UAE’s fake rain to deal with 50 degrees, sweltering heat
To crush extensive heat faced by UAE, the UAE’s National Center of Meteorology appeared with a treatment to curb the heat. The objective was to reduce burning heat. The outcome for this situation emerged to create a monsoon-like downpour in the wasteland nation as soon as possible to provide relief to the citizens experiencing sweltering heat.
The intensified rain was formulated by the utilization of drone technology which is also referred to as cloud seeding. So, what do you infer by the term “cloud seeding”. According to Wikipedia, cloud seeding is a variety of mutation of weather that intends to alter the quantity or kind of precipitation, moisture formation, that drops from the clouds by scattering entities into the air and act as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which modify the microphysical procedures in the interior of the clouds.
Undoubtedly, this was the simplest, effective, and only one method to get rid of severe summer heat. Like several other countries such as the US, India, and Canada, Dubai is also observing roasting heat to the magnitude that the temperatures have extended 50 degrees Celsius at a period.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) National Center of Meteorology for whipping the warmth, has adopted the strategy that developed in creating monsoon-like heavy downpour in the country battling with severe heat. According to the reports produced by UAE’s media the intensified downpour was produced with the help of the latest drone technology, also called cloud seeding. This technology has several benefits including the usage to enrich precipitation or create moisture bubbles, which in turn, develops charges of electricity provoking clouds to merge or bombard with each other and yield liquid. It is reported that the typical precipitation rate in the UAE estimates to be just 100 mm annually.
As per specialists, the technology strives to formulate rain more productively within clouds and in the procedure, it accelerates excessive water to go down. They also implied that cloud seeding procedures can enable in ameliorating the rain or water-related difficulties.
A video of the rain was posted on the official Twitter account of the National Center of Meteorology. The video showcased raining on a highway hitting against the vehicles. The clip distributed also exhibited the harsh drizzling overrunning highways encompassing few flickers of lightning.
A statement given by Alya Al-Mazroui, director of the UAE’s rain-enhancement science-research protocol, given a few months back is trending “Equipped with a payload of electric-charge emission instruments and customized sensors, these drones will fly at low altitudes and deliver an electric charge to air molecules, which should encourage precipitation.”
