BSC Dust Daily Forecast
Operational daily dust forecast at 72 hours of the BSC Dust Models for global and regional domains. The BSC Dust Daily Forecast contributes to the SDS-WAS dust forecast model intercomparison and the Barcelona Dust Forecast Center. At the global scale, the model contributes to the International Cooperative for Aerosol Prediction (ICAP) Multi Model Ensemble.
Our dust forecasts are used to support different communities as air quality national management officers in Southern Europe (i.e. Spain, Portugal and Italy), private aviation stakeholders providing services in Northern Africa and Middle East (see our ongoing collaboration with Wilkens Weather Technology) as well as experimental research communities as the European Aerosol Research Lidar Network (EARLINET).
