Sand and dust storms (SDS) are common in deserts and semi-deserts when strong winds blow over dry soils with little or no vegetation. Dust generated by SDS is often raised high into the atmosphere and transported over long distances, frequently over the oceans. These atmospheric events are important for ecosystem functioning, with a wide range of effects on the Earth system. Given the hazards they pose to society, and the threats implied to the achievement of several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), they have also become an issue of increasing concern to governments and the international community.
