Application of Models-3/CMAQ on Asian Dust Storm

Abstract:

Article Preview

A coupled modeling system has been developed to describe the mineral dust cycle in the atmosphere. It is composed of MM5, ECIP, WE (wind erosion model) and CMAQ. A strong dust storm of North China in 2002 is simulated by this system. The modeled results show good consistent with observations and pre-existing researches in aspects of dust emission flux in source regions, distributions , vertical profiles and time variation of dust aerosol. Therefore, it can be used for further study on Asian dust storms. Furthermore, this system can be developed for further studies of the impact of dust aerosols on air quality.
