Within the framework of the NASA-Israeli MEIDEX project, the averaged 3D-distribution of Saharan dust was estimated and analyzed. This averaged distribution was based on the 2.5-year database of 48-h dust forecasts produced by the dust prediction system, which had been developed earlier at the University of Athens and subsequently modified in Tel Aviv(More)

[1] In this study, forecast errors in dust vertical distributions were analyzed. This was carried out by using quantitative comparisons between dust vertical profiles retrieved from lidar measurements over Rome, Italy, performed from 2001 to 2003, and those predicted by models. Three models were used: the four-particle-size Dust Regional Atmospheric Model(More)
