Simulation and analysis of synoptic scale dust storms over the Arabian Peninsula
Description: Dust storms are among the most severe environmental problems in arid and semi-arid regions of the world. For this scientific study the predictability of seven dust events are investigated over the Arabian Peninsula using a regionally adapted chemistry transport model CHIMERE coupled with the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model. The hourly forecast products of particulate matter concentrations (PM10) and aerosol optical depths (AOD) are compared against both satellite-based and ground-based remote sensing products.[Source: Atmospheric Research]
