Geoengineering a mountain in the UAE to increase rainfall

Resource / Geoengineering a mountain in the UAE to increase rainfall

By Nikki Kapp / 07 Jun 2016

- UAE + US National Centre for Atmospheric Research are doing a study on building an artificial mountain to increase rainfall

- first modelling results expected this summer

- UAE is one of the 10 driest nations on earth

- UAE already practices 'cloud seeding' to trigger rain formation

- potential unintended consequences of the mountain formation => shifting rain patterns, could negatively affect rainfall in nearby country, potential for conflict

What might the implications of this be? What related resources have you seen?
