Dust event maps

Each map shows the types and number of dust events recorded per year, from 2000 to 2009. The stacked bars are the Types of Dust Events recorded at particular locations. The bars indicate the number of each type of dust event that occurred - from big dust storms, to a moderate dust haze. The spread of colour on the map is the Dust Storm Index (DSI) calculated for Australia in that year. This indicates the intensity of dust levels using dust storm data.

Dust concentration in the air

Each map represents the amount of dust in the air that was recorded that year. The amount of dust in the air has been calculated as Dust Concentration (µg/m3).
µg/m3 = micrograms per cubic metre. 1µg = 1 millionth of a gram. For more information on the data displayed in these maps,contact us. You can also read about Dust Concentration data in the Wind Erosion Histories.
