Sandstorm model is a new module of IMS4 Model Suite. It is based on the state-of-the-art of the 3D numerical weather prediction and model for sand uplift, dispersion and deposition.
It is verified against geostationary and polar orbiting satellites, lidar and aerodrome reports. Results of the IMS4 Model Suite Sandstorm prediction system are very promising and indicate that system will help prepare public for sandstorm events.
Recently, MicroStep-MIS with its local partner Unique System FZE realize this project in Dubai Municipality.
