UAE is considering to create the first artificial mountain in the world in order to increase the proportion of rainfall there. The state began planning for the project by cooperating with experts from the US National Center and The National Center for Meteorology and Seismology.
After obtaining funding of 400 thousand dollars, a detailed vision for the project was developed in order to prepare a study on the probable results of this mountain on the weather in UAE.
According to one of the experts participating in the project, the effects of the current weather on the artificial mountain are being conducted in a new study , and the preliminary report is supposed to be issued this summer.
The location of the mountain is not announced yet, as experts are still studying various locations around the state in order to find the right place to set it.
