Research overview:
The purpose of this study is to clarify the process of dust outbreak and the relationship between ground surface condition, such as surface soil water content, temperature, vegetation cover etc, and dust outbreak through observations in Dunhuang, China. By setting automatic meteorological stations in different types of ground surface and continues observation of meteorological conditions, dust concentrations and soil conditions to obtain the basic data concerning ground surface conditions and dust outbreak and to apply the data to dust outbreak model in the course of parameterization and verification.
