Dust and many types of aerosols are major pollutants significantly affecting the environment in the East Asia. To identify and classify various types of aerosols is a challenge. In Taiwan and nearby areas, Asian Dust mainly arrive in spring with an average of about 5 dust storms each year. They usually come with some other aerosol sources, therefore it is important to identify these aerosols and their properties. In this paper, we report studying of dust aerosols by using several ground-based and remote sensing measurements. The AERONET data is used to find optical properties of aerosols in 2008-2012. The lidar observations can investigate further properties and atmospheric processes for specific dust events, including observations of aerosol-cloud interactions. These combined with model or space observations can help us to understand long range dust particles transported to distant areas and their interaction with weather systems. A real time case of observation of dust-cloud interaction is provided.
