Citizen scientists from around the world have been reporting dust events. A curated, analysis-ready GLOBE dust dataset is now available. This subset of GLOBE data has been post-processed by a scientist on the GLOBE team and is now available to the broader community. You can also download GLOBE dust observations using one of two options. Option 1 is to download the data to a spreadsheet. Option 2 is to download the data to a JSON or GeoJSON file. For both options, you need to download clouds data first because dust data are part of the clouds data set, and then filter for dust observations.
