Sharjah24 – AFP: Thailand is set to deploy rainmaking planes to seed clouds in an effort to tackle the pall of pollution that has shrouded the capital in recent weeks.
The weather modification technique involves dispersing chemicals into the air to aid cloud condensation, which should in theory result in rain. 
"The Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation... expects the rainmaking to be done on Tuesday but it depends on wind and humidity levels," Pralong Dumrongthai, director-general of Thailand's Pollution Control Department.
