Dust transportation from arid zones can influence urban air quality and have an impact on climate variables. In this study, we simulated a dust incursion from Saharan Desert to Istanbul. The dust transportation occurred on March 22, 2018. At first, the transportation pattern was simulated using a regional climate model. The model is RegCM, which is developed by The Abdus Salam, International Centre for Theoretical Physics. The study domain was selected to include both dust source and receptor locations. Community land model version 4.5 was used to define surface-climate interactions. Although burden was highest at March 22 18:00, the highest ground-level concentration was at March 23 12:00. This was related to development of planetary boundary layer. Dust was settled after mixing height was elevated at a huge extent.
