China with their upcoming technology hopes to increase rainfall by 10 billion cubic metres a year
Due to rising temperatures, China is experimenting to increase rainfall on the Tibetan plateau by a weather modification system. By using the technology , they hope to increase rainfall in the region up to 10 billion cubic meters a year which is about 7 per cent of China’s total water consumption , reports South China Morning Post.
The Tibetan plateau is the Asia’s largest freshwater reserve, including the Yellow River, Yangtze, Mekong, Salween and the Brahmaputra that feeds on it . Its water feeds almost the half of the population of the world, flowing through India, Nepal, Laos and Myanmar and other countries.
China expects on building a system of fuel-consuming chambers in select areas over the level. The chambers will consume strong fuel to create silver iodide, a cloud seeding specialist. This will instigate rain and snow. The chambers will be based on soak mountain edges confronting the bearing of the breeze. At the point when the breeze hits the chambers, it creates an upward draft and sends particles into the climate to bring precipitation — a solitary chamber can purportedly frame a piece of thick mists extending crosswise over more than 5 kilometers.
The innovation has been utilized by different nations, for example, the US, China is endeavoring to execute it in a substantial scale.
There are now 500 burners purportedly conveyed on the level for experimentation. Analysts are taking a gander at approaches to guarantee the burners require least upkeep once operational, particularly since they will be worked in a remote situation.
Every burner costs $8,000 (around 50,000 Yuan) to assemble and introduce — less expensive as they are mass delivered.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
