Meteorological expert Jamal Ibrahim says Kuwait’s geographical location contributes greatly to its protection from natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes, because Kuwait’s land is flat and has no mountains, reports Aljarida daily. Speaking to the daily, Ibrahim indicated that Kuwait Meteorological Agency, where he has been working for many years, has 28 automated stations distributed throughout Kuwait, including the main station at the airport.

He stressed that the monitoring devices and stations in the Gulf countries in general are few compared to the United States of America, which has fewer observatories than European countries. Ibrahim said he believes, the greater the number of monitoring stations, the more precise the weather forecast.

At the same time, he called for the development of minds before the devices through training courses, workshops and graduate studies just like the United States of American, which shows great importance to its scientists until they reach a high level of expertise.

He explained that winter in Kuwait is moderate. Low temperatures do not last longer than two weeks, and the rains are few. This is normal because Kuwait is a desert country, a natural phenomenon that cannot be fixed by any technology.

Cloud-seeding process is very expensive and depends mainly on the clouds which are almost completely absent in Kuwait. Kuwait, by virtue of its geographical location, does not actually have full-term fall and spring seasons. Its climate is very dry desert that lacks rain and extreme heat due to which there is very little vegetation. However, this relatively hot weather can be overcome similar to the way it was done in the 1960s.
