UAE’s carried a trial of new cloud seeding technology over Texas. The series of flights with the US state’s local weather association showed promising results.

Dr Abdulla Al Mandous, director-general of the weather centre, said: “The success of this campaign is the result of NCM’s persistent effort and commitment to rely on science and innovation to address water challenges faced by countries in arid and semi-arid regions such as the Gulf and Middle East."

He said the UAE Research Programme for Rain Enhancement Science, a project that has led to millions of dollars in research grants being awarded to scientists around the world, had "made a major progress, raising prospects for the country to ensure sustainable water resources".

The UAE is investing more money in helping the country rain. Researchers are now using drones and electric shock technology to help make it rain.
