Forecasting and Early Warning of Dust Storms: UNEP Global Environmental Alert Service (GEAS) - February 2013

United Nations Environment Programme (2013)

Dust storms can have high interannual, as well as annual and decadal, variability, thus it is important that more research is conducted over longer periods of time to analyze trends and associated storm severity. With increased information about long term trends, more accurate forecasts of dust storm movements can be developed, the appropriate efforts to mitigate damage can be put into place and effective early warning can be communicated.
