High latitude dust (HLD), originating from cold high latitudes (≥ 50 °N and ≥ 40 °S) affects the cryosphere, oceans, air quality and safety, and in Europe both the High Arctic and the European mainland. Extreme HLD events include events with exceptional magnitude, duration, severity, or extent, such as most severe wind erosion events, storms, dust storms, snow-dust storms, heat waves, cold weather, and extreme snowfalls.

Confirmed Key note speaker: prof. Joanna Bullard, UK, the first-author of 'High‐Latitude Dust in the Earth System.'
