Short summary
In this research we developed a time-dependent dust source map for NMME-DREAM v1.0 model based on the MODIS Normalized Digital Vegetation Index (NDVI). Areas with NDVI < 0.1 are classified as active dust sources. The new modeling system is tested for the analysis of dust particle dispersion over SW Asia using a mesoscale model grid increment of 0.1° × 0.1° km for a period of 1 year. Simulated AOD increased compared to the static dust source approach and there was an increase in dust loads.
