In this paper 23 synoptic stations that have longest and complete statistical period are used for analysis the maximum dusty days. Two distinct time periods (2001-2005) & (2006-2010) are analyzed. The results show Maximum dusty days happen in the May, June and July in most stations. Most pollution was observed in Oxidize (Pagan) station. Second period, Clearly shows an increase in the number of days in the dust. In addition, Causes of the Dust are explained with Satellite Images and Range of days with dust was shown by Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW)
