Dubai Floods: What is Cloud Seeding

What is It? 

Cloud seeding modifies weather by introducing substances into clouds, aiming to increase precipitation.

The Science  

Cloud seeding relies on nucleation, where seeding agents like silver iodide facilitate the formation of larger water droplets or ice crystals.

Seeding Type

Static seeding releases agents from the ground, while dynamic seeding uses aircraft to disperse them into clouds.


Effective cloud seeding requires high humidity, suitable temperatures, and the presence of supercooled water or ice crystals in clouds.


Cloud seeding is used for agricultural development, water resource management, and weather modification purposes.


Cloud seeding raises concerns about its environmental impact, including unintended consequences on ecosystems and ethical dilemmas regarding water resource control.
