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.

WMO Dust Research Center

The World Meteorological Organization's Sand and Dust Storm Warning Advisory and Assessment System (SDS-WAS) -Northern Africa, Middle East and Europe Regional Center collects and distributes in-situ and remote-sensing dust relevant observations, daily experimental dust forecasts from several organizations around the globe (that are used to generate a multi-model product), information and training material, and news for the SDS-WAS community.

WMO Dust Operational Center

The Barcelona Dust Forecast Center is the first World Meteorological Organization’s Regional Specialized Meteorological Center focussing its activities on Atmospheric Sand and Dust Forecast. It is jointly managed by the BSC and the Spanish Meteorological Agency (AEMET). The Center provides daily dust forecast at 72 hours based on our in-house BSC dust model which runs operationally 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Image Catalogue

Repository for images derived from the work of the Earth System Services group. All images are obtained as a result of using the best information from subseasonal-to-seasonal climate prediction science. The Catalogue has the aim to facilitate the storage and retrieval of images by scientists, energy forecasters and industrial partners participating in the project and also by external users. It provides access to stored data from everywhere and it is also useful for image citing purposes in publications.

BSC Dust Numerical Database

The numerical dust forecasts of both the BSC-DREAM8b and NMMB/BSC-Dust models are accessible from this page.
