The near-real-time (NRT) model evaluation is an assessment of how the forecast behaves relative to observations that are NRT available, allowing the modelling group and the end users to have a quick overview of the quality of the forecast. Forecasts of dust optical depth (DOD) are compared with total aerosol optical depth (AOD) provided by the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) for selected dust-prone stations located in Northern Africa, Middle East and Southern Europe.
