Meteorological and Climatological Aspects of Wind Erosion in Bulgaria

Peter Ivanov


Meteorological and climatological conditions for dust storm generation are discussed in the paper: dust storm duration; monthly amount of precipitation during the period preceding the events; air temperature, humidity, maximum wind speed and horizontal visibility values. Three dust storm groups are identified in accordance with available regional synoptic processes. Climatological forecasting of dust storm frequency was elaborated, based on a Chepil formulae.
