We have organized a network campaign for the observation of Asian dust in the spring of 1997 and 1998 in Japan. Through the communication with electric mail, we have successfully observed Kosa events by lidar, sunphotometer, and particle counter, etc. These data must be useful to analyze the transport mechanism of Asian dust and validate the satellite observations.
