In recent years, dust storms coming from western neighboring countries are drastically increased dust storms and affecting western and even central part of Iran. This phenomenon is caused a lot of environmental and socio-economic problems. A few studies have been carried out to determine the sources of dusts. Most of them have been done base on satellite images and metrological information which were reviewed in this paper. Geological maps and information on wind erosion susceptible land can help to determine the areas for dust materials producing. In this paper, dust sources which determined by the previous studies were compared by geological unites map and the map of mean annual rainfall of susceptible areas in the western neighboring countries. This research can be help to find the impact of geological units on the wind erosion lands for finding dust storm sources in the states of western parts of Iran.
