Explained: Artificial Cloudburst in India, is China's conspiracy? . What is Artificial Cloudburst and how Artificial Rain Possible.

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao stated in January that cloudburst incidents in India may be the result of a foreign power conspiracy. He had previously done the same in Leh-Ladakh and Uttarakhand. The big question now is whether it is possible to create an artificial cloudburst. So, the short answer is that it is possible.

What is a cloudburst? 

According to IMD, a cloudburst occurs when the amount of rain falling over a specific region exceeds 100 millimetres per hour. "Cloudburst occurs when moist air rises through a mountainous region, forming a vertical column of Cumulonimbus clouds. These clouds are known to produce rain, thunder, and lightning "According to DownToEarth magazine. Extreme rain in a short period of time over a geographical area of 20 to 30 square kilometres has the potential to cause floods. Cloudbursts have become more common in the Himalayan region in recent years. A cloudburst and subsequent flooding near Baltal base camp en route to Amarnath cave in Kashmir recently claimed 14 lives and injured 44 people.

What causes cloudbursts? 

While cloudbursts are a natural climatic phenomenon, climate change and ocean warming have increased their frequency. According to experts, the increased temperature of the Indian Ocean is causing moisture-rich air to reach the Himalayan region. According to Munir Ahmad of the Indian Institute of Technology, Srinagar, the rising temperature of the Indian Ocean is a clear indication of climate change. According to DTE, cloudbursts are most common between 1,000 and 2,500 metres above sea level.

What is Artificial Rain? 

It is the practise of adding external agents to clouds in order to artificially induce or increase precipitation. Dry ice (solid carbon dioxide), silver iodide, salt powder, and other foreign particles can be drenched over these clouds. Cloud Seeding is the name given to this process. Aeroplanes or rockets are used to provide this stimulation. And finally, "rain on."

Is Artificial Rain Possible?

Our neighbouring country, China, has previously used Weather Control Technology. Dragon Country knows how to make it rain when they want it and stop it when they don't. The Olympic Games were held in Beijing, China's capital, in 2008. The Olympic Games are not a pipe dream...they are the world's largest sporting event. The competitions will be hampered if it rains during such a multi-sport event.

As a result, China used weather modification techniques to avoid rain. If there is a chance of rain during a sporting event, it will have rained the day before. They cause the clouds to rain and clear the sky. The sporting event will then go off without a hitch. In 2008, China used this technology. Bullets containing salt and minerals were fired into the sky, causing artificial rain.

In Dubai, artificial rain has also been poured to provide relief from the 50-degree heat in the summer. This was accomplished through the use of cloud seeding technology. Chemicals such as silver iodide, potassium iodide, and dry ice are first carried by planes and helicopters and then sprinkled in the sky in this method. They draw moisture from the air. When all of the water particles combine, large cumulonimbus clouds form. Those clouds are full of electricity and rain. This method produces rain in half an hour to an hour.

How Artificial Rain is done? 

Agitation: In the first stage, chemicals are used to stimulate the air mass upwind of the target area to rise and form clouds. These chemicals absorb water vapour and aid in the condensation process. Calcium Oxide, Urea and Ammonium Nitrate compound, or Chloride Calcium Carbonate are examples of chemicals.

Building Up Stage: In the second stage, urea, dry ice, kitchen salt, and other substances are used to increase the density of the clouds.

Seeding: In the final stage of pursuing artificial rain, super cool chemicals (dry ice or iodide) are bombarded onto the base of the clouds with the presurized canister to build the beads of water and make them fall as rain.

What is the need of Artificial Rain?

We understand the rain-making process. It begins with the evaporation of water from the sea or any other body of water. Then it travels upstream as the wind rises high in the troposphere (the bottom layer of the atmosphere), causing some drops to merge, and this merging process continues until the drop thickness reaches 0.1mm and they can no longer float up there, and we are bestowed by the almighty rain.

But why do we have to deal with drought? There are often clouds but no rain. One could attempt to make it rain. This is where ARTIFICIAL RAINFALL comes in. When the temperature of the clouds is close to "0" and there may be ice crystals in them. The water vapours do not condense to become liquid. This is metalized by cloud seeding, and it rains once more, but this time artificially.
