How cloud seeding works

Why the UAE resorts to cloud-seeding in the first place

The UAE is one of the first countries in the Gulf to be using this technology. In other countries, its benefit includes controlling the formation of hail- resulting in less physical damages. Cloud seeding can even help decrease the likelihood of hurricanes and lightning.

In the UAE, on the other hand, makes use of this technology to benefit farmlands, increase water supply and help ease the effects of dry spells.
