The occurrence of sand and dust storms (SDS) is a global problem that hinders sustainable development, particularly in regions with arid and semi-arid climate. According to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), each year approximately 2 billion tonnes of dust are emitted into the atmosphere.
Sand and dust storms (SDS) are a combination of different hazards, such as sand dust and wind, that interact with each other and form a dangerous natural phenomenon. It is hard to figure out the exact intensity, magnitude and direction of SDS. This amplifies their potentially disruptive effect.
