The United Arab Emirates famous for its sky high buildings,culture and beaches, is now planning to build a mountain.
They are taking this step, Because the desert flatlands make it difficult for air to evaporate and form rain clouds, the UAE thinks building a mountain can solve the problems that its hot climate poses.
the idea sounds a bit like science fiction, it’s based on a very real meteorological concept called “orographic precipitation.” When moist air rises up one side of a mountain, it cools and forms clouds. Those clouds then produce precipitation, leading to rainfall on the side of the mountain facing the wind.
the country has given $400,000 to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), a U.S.-based research institute sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
Idea seems good, But in the long term it may cause some trouble to the nature.
