The United Arab Emirates is used to building landmasses were there were none before, but creating a mountain from scratch is a whole new level.

Nonetheless, the UAE is considering precisely that kind of construction. With hopes that it will encourage raincloud development in a country mostly covered in desert, the UAE is looking to build a full-sized artificial mountain.

 Desert flatlands make it difficult for air to get the upward climb required to collect into rain clouds, but creating a mountain could help bring a certain amount of rain to the otherwise arid region.

The artificial mountain will force air upwards and create clouds that with seeding could produce additional rainfall.
