Did Cloud Seeding Contribute to UAE's Rainfall?
The country witnessed record breaking rainfall this year
According to reports in The National, cloud seeding operations over the UAE have caused much of the record-breaking rain this year.
Reportedly, 77 seeding operations took place between January and the end of March, more than three times the number during the same period last year, the National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology meteorologist and cloud seeding expert Sufian Farrah has said.
He was quoted saying, “We covered most of the available clouds in the country, so the rainfall increased. Even if we didn’t carry out any operations it would rain, but the objective of cloud seeding is rain enhancement, and most of the clouds that are subject to seeding will generate rain.”
