Dust storms can have an impact on human health, weather patterns as well as cause disruption through flight delays and the closure of highways. Data from LANCE are used to monitor and predict dust storms. This information is used by agencies within the Department of Defense to improve resource allocation in remote areas and help promote aircraft safety.
Potentially useful data sets: MODIS Aerosol, Corrected Reflectance and Land Surface Reflectance, AIRS Dust Score and OMI Aerosol Optical Depth, Absorbing Aerosol Optical Depth and Aerosol Index.
