Dust storm incidences, especially strong dust storms, are not only immediately dangerous but may also have a long-term harmful effect. Occurrences of dust storms have been implicated in outbreaks of environmental diseases in many regions of countries such as Iran. In other words, they severely destroy the area’s climate-atmospheric and ecological environments including vegetation and soil and can accelerate desertification by sand burying and blowing. Additionally, dust storms can cause a number of serious health hazards. They have therefore become an important environmental problem recognized by more and more people. The First International Conference on Dust 2016 is the first interdisciplinary conference in Iran on spatial and geographical distributions, covering mineralogical, geochemical, environmental, economic and social aspects of dust storms. Finally, this conference provides opportunities for the delegates to present new information and to exchange new ideas in an atmosphere of camaraderie.

The Objectives of the conference are as below:

  • Development of effective strategies to control dust storms especially in the Middle East,
  • Identification of solutions and controlling factors of storms using modern domestic technologies,
  • Identification of the source(s )and cause(s) of dust storms,
  • Investigation of dust storms’ consequences.


Conference topic

  • Strategies to control dust emission in source areas
  • Technical methods to control environmental issues of dust events
  • Strategies to deal with socio-economic impacts of dust events
