Could a manmade mountain be the key to a wetter UAE?

by • May 4, 2016 • No Comments

Already home to a few of the world’s many ambitious construction and engineering projects, which include the Burj Khalifa, The World, and Dubai Observation Tower, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is reportedly exploring the possibility of constructing a manmade mountain as part of an take on to boost rainfall in the area.

According to local business magazine Arabian Business, the basic thought is which producing a sizeable mountain may force air to rise and encourage the creation of clouds. Cloud seeding may and so be employed to increase rain in the area. Just how big an area may benefit of producing the mountain isn’t clear.

Experts of the United States University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) have teamed up with the UAE’s own National Center of Meteorology & Seismology (NCMS) to conduct the research.

The scientists are carrying out a modeling study to decide the location the manmade mountain may be most placed, in addition to its height, shape, and width.

The project is yet in its early stages and appears too expensive and outlandish for it to leave the drawing board. That said, you may manufacture the same argument for several of the UAE’s many memorable sizeable-scale architectural projects, so who knows?
