Make rain in Thailand


Despite the Songkran party last year, the consequences of El Nino appear to be stronger. Thailand is increasingly suffering from the drought. In total this would cover a period of 7 years, but now the high point or rather the low point would have been reached.

Artificial handles are used to get rain. The Dutchman August Veraart (1881 – 1947) was the first to do tests to generate rain. These days enormous amounts of crystal silver iodide are used to “spray the clouds with airplanes. The small droplets of water that make up a cloud deposit on the crystals and then settle down. This technique is used by the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation in the N.O. of Thailand to replenish the reservoirs.

Where the drought is very critical, such as at the Ubonrat Dam in Khon Kaen and the Lam Takhong Dam in Nakhon Ratchasma, this "rain" has brought some relief. Satisfactory results were also achieved around the Pa Sak Jolasid Dam and in the Prachuap Khiri Khan province.

The army was deployed to provide water to certain areas. Perhaps these emergency measures would have been less necessary if measures had already been taken in time, 4 years ago. At that time, the 7-year drought period had already been announced and water management could have managed the amount of water better and with policy.

    I'm not an expert on, but all those coastal areas, can't a few seawater desalination plants be built there, if only for supplying sanitary water? Could already be part of the solution.
    They can go further and further with 7 days of Songkran versus the capital of Bangkok 3 days….

    Furthermore, we always compare the condos in Pattaya with western ones, but where in our regions, is water supplied with tankers instead of … tap water.?

    Only those desalination plants cost quite a lot, with the result that even the Israelis prefer to get water from Turkey by tanker. So if you have no problem with around 500 THB per liter of water … you can splash.

    When it rains, they drain all that water to the sea as quickly as possible.
    If it then becomes dry, there is no water supply.
    You can only solve the problem through more storage space for water.
    As China starts to extract more and more water from the rivers, the problem of drought becomes even greater.

    The problem with the water collection is also to come. People here make storage basins of a maximum of 1.5 meters deep, which means that the surface is much larger than the volume, resulting in too much evaporation.
    If you were smarter then you made a reasonable depth of about 10 meters in such a way that the volume becomes larger, the temperature more constant and since the temperature is lower less evaporation, but yes this is all the intention or is there more behind it, I personally think that it is big money but the Bangkok elite is not interested in the Thai farmers and offers them a sham solution that is not too expensive and does give them votes. If you keep the majority of the people poor and just give them enough to eat and survive, you secure your power as a rich person.
