Abstract
The Iraq war has passed about three years. This paper introduces the analysis of the huge dust storm happened in the middle of the Arabia Peninsula on 25-27 March 2003, in course of Iraq war, with remote sensing technology, and shows that the weather condition is one of the important factors parameters in Modern warfare. The result of analysis is based on two kinds of meteorological satellite data, geostationary orbit satellite and polar orbit satellite, and shows that the FY-1C/LDPT data and the Metosate-5 images, have great effect on analyzing the dust storm.
