Short summary
Specific physical and mineralogical properties of desert dust particles cause extremely efficient production of ice crystals in clouds, thus influencing climate and weather even in regions far from dust sources. This study describes a methodology for predicting conditions of cold cloud formation due to dust. This approach required development of an integrated dust-atmospheric modelling system, designed to improve operational forecasts of weather in general, and cloud/precipitation in particular.
