dc.description.abstractEnvironmental reporting and understanding of aeolian processes at different spatial and temporal scales require both extensive temporal and spatial data sources. The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) SYNOP data have been used for environmental reporting in Australia by McTainsh and colleagues since 1998; however, with the current trend to replace meteorological observers with automated surface observation systems such as weather stations, these data sources are not sustainable. DustWatch was established to fill some of the gaps in the BoM network by strategically adding a community network of observers and instruments. Satellite imagery is also utilized when it is available. This paper outlines the nature of the DustWatch network, describes some of the educational and awareness outputs, outlines the types of data gathered and gives examples of how the data are being used both for environmental reporting and research into aeolian processes and activity.en_US
