The advection and dispersion of Asian dust events during 2000-2002 from China to the Pacific Ocean around Japan were investigated using meteorological satellite data, NOAA/AVHRR and GMS-5/VISSR. Aerosol Vapor Index (AVI) images, taking the brightness temperature difference between 11 micron and 12 micron, are very effective to monitor the Asian dust phenomenon in the east Asia region, because of their capacity for night-time detection. The remarkable dust events during 2000-2002 were classified into three types based on the weather patterns: 'Dry Slot' type, 'Wedge of High Pressure' type, and 'Travelling High' type.
