DREAM 48-Hour Dust Forecast: Current PM2.5 and PM10 Animations
Most Recent PM2.5 and PM10 48-Hour Forecast Animations for New Mexico from the Dust Regional Atmospheric Model – DReAM
Particulate Matter with size less than 2.5 μm (PM2.5) Forecast is shown in the top animation; Particulate Matter with size less than 10 μm (PM10) Forecast is shown in the bottom animation.
Colors indicate predicted dust concentrations in µg/m**3 (micrograms per cubic meter), with the lowest concentration represented by white through the highest concentration represented by dark brown. The UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) date and hour for the dust forecast are shown below the animation. To convert to Mountain Standard Time (MST), subtract 7 hours from the UTC hour. To convert to Mountain Daylight Time, subtract 6 hours from the UTC hour. New Mexico and county boundaries are shown with black and gray lines.
These Particle Pollution (specifically, dust) Forecast animation loops are from http://phairs.unm.edu – Public Health Applications in Remote Sensing (PHAiRS), a NASA-funded program at The University of New Mexico. Dust forecast data sets are modeled with the Dust Regional Atmospheric Model – DREAM.
