Mongolian cyclones are a precursor to severe dust storms in East Asia. My research aims to systematically clarify the effects of these cyclones on such dust storms, with a specific focus on the dynamic process involved in the outbreaks. I am particularly interested in how Mongolian cyclones contribute to the emissions and transport of dust from various desert regions in East Asia.
