Forecasting Dust Storms - Version 2

Forecasting Dust Storms - Version 2
Forecasting Dust Storms Version 2 provides background and operational information about dust storms. The first part of the module describes dust source regions, the life cycle of a dust storm, and the major types of dust storms, particularly those found in the Middle East. The second part presents the processes for forecasting dust storms and applies it to a case in the Southwest U.S. and the Middle East. The process can easily be adapted to other forecast requirements and data sources. Note that this module is an updated version of the original one published in 2010.
