  • Abstract

    A simple sediment transport model has been utilized to simulate the dust grain movement in the area flow. The transport model can be used as a tool to estimate the dust grain transport situation in a mining area with consideration of the local topographical profile. The case study of the local dust characteristics survey proves the model works fairly well compared to the field calibration.
