The EEA 2017 Air Quality Report which refers to the year 2015, on page 35 mentions that Copernicus found several dust (PM10) storms. The dust storm by which Cyprus was hit in September 2015 is not mentioned. Do you know the reason?

The information in box 4.1 on page 35 of the Air Quality in Europe – 2017 report refers to PM10 pollution episodes, that is, periods of time with high concentrations of PM10 due to anthropogenic and/or natural sources (as natural dust storms). If you wish to have more details, as the information comes from the reference Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) 2016, we would suggest you to contact directly them at:
I hope this information may be of use to you.
