Recently there has been an 10324 ACPD Abstract 25 CUACE/Dust (Chinese Unified Atmospheric Chemistry Environment for Dust) modeling system in China has been transferred from a research model into an operational forecasting system of SDS since 2004. This system consists of a comprehensive dust aerosol module with emission, dry/wet depositions and other atmospheric dynamic 10325 ACPD Abstract ACPD Abstract 25 data assimilation system. At the same time, the Chinese geostationary satellite FY-2C was operational to provide the retrieved dust distribution in Northeast Asia, Abstract 30 10333 Abstract
