Summary

This report presents the Center’s activities in the 2010-2012 period. It reports on its efforts to build capacity in the region and to develop user services to reduction of adverse impacts of dust in countries heavily impacted by dust storms. There remain important SDS-WAS research issues to be considered and it is hoped that the Center will continue to play a coordinating role in addressing these. These research topics include the assimilation of observations in numerical dust prediction models

role of dust chemical/mineral composition on health and environment

direct and indirect interactions of dust and the atmosphere

introduction of new generation of measurements (e.g. ceilometers) to better monitor dust process.
