Keeping this in consideration, how Cloud seeding is done?
This can be made to come together and form ice crystals by seeding the atmosphere with chemicals such as silver iodide or dry ice. They work to promote rainfall by inducing nucleation – what little water is in the air condenses around the newly introduced particles and crystallises to form ice.
Furthermore, why is cloud seeding important? One big benefit of cloud seeding is being able to create rain in regions that are most affected by droughts, lessening the impact of the harsh climate. By using the technique, farms can yield more crops due to the fact that farmers will be able to grow plants in areas that might not have supported them in the past.
Also question is, what is cloud seeding and how is it being used in the UAE?
The UAE has been carrying out cloud seeding operations for more than a decade. It involves flying an aircraft to a cloud that has little rain droplets already present. The aircraft shoots salt flares into the cloud to enhance rainfall. We also use flares made in the UAE, called Ghaith.
Is cloud seeding a real thing?
Cloud seeding—sowing clouds with small particles to make them rain or snow—has a reputation as dodgy as the weather. In the 1940s, atmospheric scientist Bernard Vonnegut found that particles of silver iodide can cause supercool clouds of water vapor to freeze into snow in the lab.
