Creating Artificial Rain by Building Small Hadley Cells

There is a method to increase precipitation called “Cloud seeding”. Artificial rain by utilizing sunlight – Hadley microcell – is another interesting approach for creating artificial rain.  Hadley cell is a natural phenomenon and part of Hadley cell close to the equator receives rich precipitation. Why rain happens There are several mechanisms of creating precipitations […]

Urban Heat Island Effect: Causes, Impacts and Mitigation

The urban heat island (UHI) effect arises due to absorption of incident radiation from the sun by built surfaces of tall buildings, roof, concrete structures and asphalt roads and then releasing it in the form of heat. The term “urban heat island” describes the built-up areas that are significantly hotter than the surrounding open, natural […]
