Last month, UAE Research Programme for Rain Enhancement Science, under the supervision of NCM, hosted the 4th International Rain Enhancement Forum, Iref.

The event ran from Jan 19 to 21 at Jumeirah Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, and brought together leading international and national experts to discuss latest rain enhancement technologies and solutions to global water resource challenges, capacity building in rain enhancement, and Artificial Intelligence, AI, and its meteorology applications.

The event featured several panel sessions and discussions along with announcing the UAEREP’s 2nd cycles’ projects’ results, and updates on the projects supported by the programme.

During its three day run, the forum featured several sessions. On the opening day, a panel discussion titled “Rain Enhancement and the Global Picture” convened multiple international experts on the topics of rain enhancement and weather modification including Dr. Said Alsarmi, a leading GCC meteorology expert, Omar Al Yazeedi, Director of Research, Development and Training at NCM, Prof. David Delene, Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at University of North Dakota, and Steven Siems, Professor at School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment, Monash University. On the same day, Dr. Deon Terblanche, Weather and Climate Consultant at World Bank and former Director of Research at the World Meteorological Organisation, WMO, will present an overview of UAEREP awarded projects.

The agenda will also feature a session titled ‘Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent System Applications in Meteorology and Rain Enhancement’ with the participation of Prof. Ernesto Daimiani, Senior Director at Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Systems Institute at Khalifa University. The session will draw the participation of Prof. Eric Frew, Associate Professor at the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Colorado in Boulder, USA, Dr. Gary Thunen, Chief Scientist and Senior Fellow, Advanced Technology Centre, Lockheed Martin Space, Dr. Campbell Watson, Research Staff Member at IBM Research, and Dr. Svante Henriksson, Senior Researcher at Finnish Meteorological Institute.
