First operational dust forecast for the Icelandic high-latitude dust

Numerous scientific studies and reports indicate that the Icelandic topsoil sediments are the largest and the most important European source of the mineral dust, representing also one of the best-studied high-latitude dust areas. WMO SDS-WAS Regional Steering Group for Northern Africa, Middle East and Europe (NAMEE), incorporated the issue of Icelandic dust into NAMEE research and operational activities, thus recognizing the importance of such dust type for the community. The EU COST Action CA16202 [“International Network to Encourage the Use of Monitoring and Forecasting Dust Products (inDust)]” has also supported research actions addressed to the Icelandic dust.

This operational dust forecasting system has been developed by the Republic Hydrometeorological Service of Serbia (RHMSS) in collaboration with the Agricultural University of Iceland (AUI) and it is based on DREAM model.
