WG4 is working on the transfer of dust products to user-oriented applications and ex-post evaluation of the services value. WG4 is proposing the most suitable products for the application areas identified by users involved in the Action and also identified by WG3 on Capacity Building. Therefore, WG4 is working in close collaboration with WG3.

  • Task 4.1. Identify the specific needs of the users not covered by existing dust products.

  • Task 4.2. Identify and record end-user current capacities and requirements related to data handling formats.

  • Task 4.3. Design tailored observational and forecast products to cover specific user needs. This task will also work to bridging between research and commercial organisations, to transfer pure research/knowledge/tools to the applied domain.

Because of the specific requirements of each socio-economic sector, this WG is organised through 4 Task Force groups that are promoting specific actions considering the individual sector on AviationAir QualityHealth and Solar Energy.

All the achievements and outcomes resulting from this WG4 on dust-oriented products are also transferred to the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) Sand and Dust Storms Warning Advisory and Assessment System (SDS-WAS) Regional Center for Northern Africa, the Middle East and Europe to enhance their visibility and facilitate their access.
