1. Model performance in the Persian Gulf is only fair due to the presence of organics and pollution from oil industry.
2.The microphysical properties of dust are complicated. We want to evaluate dust measurement techniques and assess dust properties.

3.The cloudless sky conditions and variable aerosol concentrations often found in the UAE make ground based radiative transfer studies feasible.

4.The sharp contrasts between land and water, as well as the high surface heating and evaporation over the Persian Gulf makes the region a good place to stress meteorology models.
