I don’t feel surprised when I read that UAE is planning to build an artificial mountain to increase rainfall in their region because they have made several impossible things. So they can do this also.
But the question is how does this help.
The researchers have explained that the artificial mountains will help forming clouds (not exactly the rainfall clouds). And once the clouds formed, a meteorological process – known as “cloud seeding” will start to occur and this hence increase the rainfall.
As per as reports, their plan is ready, but they are waiting for National Center of Meteorology and Seismology, who has to figure out the project cost.
