In this study the AA. focus the investigation of two dust storm events that occurred in spring 2006 over northern China (on 9-11 April and on 16-17 April). They caused widespread dust deposition, especially in the vicinity of Beijing. The weather systems that generated these dust storms were cold fronts associated with Mongolia cyclones. These events are simulated using a dust-storm model developed at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Beijing. The simulated dust concentrations are found to agree well with the synoptic records and satellite images
