International Network to Encourage the Use of Monitoring and Forecasting Dust Products
Over the last few years, numerical prediction and observational products from ground- and satellite platforms have become prominent at several research and operational weather centres due to growing interest from diverse stakeholders, such as solar energy plant managers, health professionals, aviation and policy makers. Current attempts to transfer tailored products to end-users are not coordinated, and the same technological and social obstacles are tackled individually by all different groups, a process that makes the use of data slow and expensive.
The overall objective of InDust is to establish a network involving research institutions, service providers and potential end users of information on airborne dust. Because, airborne dust transport has multi- and trans-disciplinary effects at local, regional and global scales; InDust involves a multidisciplinary group of international experts on aerosol measurements, regional aerosol modelling, stakeholders and social scientists. InDust searches to coordinate and harmonise the process of transferring dust observation and prediction data to users as well as to assist the diverse socio-economic sectors affected by the presence of high concentrations of airborne mineral dust.

Objectives

The overall objective of inDust is to establish a network involving research institutions, service providers and potential end users of information on airborne dust that can assist the diverse socio-economic sectors affected by the presence of high concentrations of airborne mineral dust.
To achieve this main objective, the following specific objectives shall be accomplished:

  • Establish a network involving research institutions, service providers, and end users of information on airborne dust.
  • Identify and exploit dust monitoring observations (from both ground-based and satellite platforms) best suited to be transferred/tailored to the needs of end-users.
  • Identify and exploit dust forecast products best suited to be transferred/tailored to the needs of end-users.
  • Coordinate the current R&D activities and enhance the availability of appropriate products to assist the diverse socio-economic sectors affected by the presence of airborne mineral dust. 
  • Build capacity through the high-level teaching of end-users (stakeholders from different socio-economic sectors) to promote the use of the delivered dust products.
  • Train technical staff to properly use the available observational and forecast products to design and implement preparedness and mitigation measures.
  • Enhance the cooperation with institutions from near-neighbouring and international partner countries in Northern Africa and the Middle East to involve them in the European-driven climate change science and mitigation/adaptation strategies.
