Paper Abstract

The relationship of the distribution of dust storm and the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index is discussed, it is pointed out that the dust storm frequently occurs at the areas with few vegetation cover, such as desert or Gobi. Several cases used with ANHRR/NOAA and GMS-5 satellite images are presented in the paper for the monitoring of the dust storms.
