Scope and topics

The DUSTworkshop9 will serve as forum for the analysis and discussion on the scientific research on dust and its connections to air quality, environmental impacts and climate.

Our goal is to bring scientists from all around the world to exchange ideas on several topics on dust research:

  • Dust impacts on air quality, human health and environment,
  • Dust and climate,
  • Mitigations of dust impacts,
  • Dust remote sensing observations,
  • Dust in-situ observations,
  • Dust modeling,
  • Dust forecast,
  • Dust – atmosphere – ocean productivity connections,
  • Dust and radiation,
  • Dust and clouds,
  • Dust properties: sources, size, composition, mineralogy, aging, mixing with pollutants,


The Workshop will include:

  • plenary talks,
  • oral presentations,
  • round table discussions,
  • poster presentations.
