Dust or Sandstorms are an atmospheric phenomenon during which the wind carries a large number of soil particles and grains of sand, accompanied by a noticeable deterioration in visibility (in some cases, it can drop to several tens of meters).

The term “dust storm” is usually used for storms occurring over areas with clay and loamy soils. And when a storm occurs in sandy deserts (for example, in the Sahara Desert), when in addition to small particles that significantly reduce visibility, the wind also carries millions of tons of large sand particles, the term “sandstorm” is used.

As a result of such storms, there is a simultaneous rise of dust into the air and its settling over vast territories. Depending on the color of the soil in the region, dust storms can have different colors, including grayish, yellowish, or reddish.
