Remote Sensing and Modeling of Atmospheric Dust and Studying Its Impact on Environment, Weather, and Climate

Description

Aerosols have been regarded as one of the major constituents of the atmosphere and have a wide range of impacts at different levels, scales, and sectors. Moreover, dust is an important factor for the climate, air quality, and meteorology of the Earth. Remote sensing and modeling of the atmospheric dust storms supported by ground observations are critical in analyzing, characterizing, and assessing many impacts in terms of dust mineralogical composition, interaction with clouds and radiation, optical and chemical characteristics, major sources of emission, mix up with anthropogenic, sea-salt and biomass aerosols during long-range transport, and deposition. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Studies of dust storms and their impact on the local and regional environment and climate, using space observations (MODIS, MISR, CALIPSO, PARASOL, SCIAMACHY, OMI, etc.), ground measurements (AERONET, sky radiometers, sun photometer, lidar systems, and chemical analysis), and modeling (SKIRON, DREAM, NAAPS, etc.)
  • Studies involving effective utilization of multisensor and simulated dust-related parameters that also address and describe vertical structure of dust, radiative effect, and inventory as well as comprehensive dust forecast for issuance of warning and public advisory
  • Research that focuses on local or long-range transported dust storms and/or pollution comprised of particulate matter of various sizes such as 10 micrometers and fine particles with diameter of 2.5 micrometers or less and their impacts on different regions of the world
  • Moreover, this issue invites all research efforts dealing with practical aspects of accessing, visualizing, and processing aerosols-related data, meteorological variables, and their impacts on regional climate, public health, and transportation over different affecting or affected geographic locations including but not limited to the Pan American Region, Asia, North Africa, and Europe
