Did cloud seeding cause UAE floods? Here’s what scientists say

Climate change linked to global warming is the more obvious answer for the UAE floods say scientists who have been studying changing weather patterns

Cloud seeding in the UAE AL AIN, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - JANUARY 31: Ground engineers restocking one of the UAE's National Center of Meteorology cloud-seeding planes with new Hygroscopic salt flares on January 31, 2024 in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Cloud seeding is a weather modification technique that employs chemicals to stimulate the formation of ice crystals or raindrops within clouds. Although cloud seeding has been in use since 1947, its significance has grown, particularly for arid regions like the UAE. The country, with its own National Center of Meteorology and Seismology deploying planes for cloud seeding, has invested in the technology as an immediate solution to address challenges related to water scarcity.

The UAE has five specialised aircraft for cloud seeding operations and it also has a factory to produce high-quality flares in the region

UAE conducted 219 cloud seeding operations in H1 2020

The UAE records an average rainfall of 100mm per year
