Table 1

The transportation types and soil sources of 18 ADS events in this study.

Transportation route typesEventsRoutes probabilityPredilection periodsAsian dust source region

ETR33.3%Late Feb.~AprilCentral (83%)
STC22.2%Nov.~next AprilWest (75%)
SST44.5%Dec.~next AprilEast (88%)

(1) ETR is the eastward transportation and retraced route.
(2) STC is the southeastern transportation and circumrotated route.
(3) SST is the straight southeastern transportation route.
