Dusty days recorded at 12 meteorological stations were obtained and analyzed at monthly and yearly scales from 1990 to 2011and then the relationship of visibility data (<1000m) with other climatic parameters including temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, maximum wind speed and direction were evaluated using multivariable linear regression. Also, two important dust events on 15/9/2008 and 5/7/2009 were selected and then MODIS level 1B satellite data was acquired and converted to brightness temperature data with MODIS conversion Toolkit ....
