Environmental reporting and understanding of aeolian processes at different spatial and temporal scales require both extensive temporal and spatial data sources. DustWatch was established to fill some of the gaps in the Bureau of Meteorology network by strategically adding a community network of observers and instruments. Satellite imagery is also utilized when it is available. This paper outlines the nature of the DustWatch network, describes some of the educational and awareness outputs, outlines the types of data gathered and gives examples of how the data are being used both for environmental reporting and research into aeolian processes and activity
