Aerosol impact on people health, social and economic activities, land and water ecosystems and meteorological parameter. The GOCART scheme was evaluated for simulating PM10 in this study. GOCART was run into WRF model as a host model. Reanalysis data from FNL for every 6 hour was used for initial conditions. One domain and two nests were used to cover region from West Africa till East Asia, Iran and Khuzestan Province. Primary results shown that the model overestimate surface moisture and the results was weak for simulating PM10 ,so we modified surface moisture using welting point of soil texture in desert region for summer. In addition, erodibility index was defined using surface moisture and threshold wind velocity and coefficient of this index modified using Tir and Day PM10 data at 1387. Results of modified model were compared with observed data in environmental station in Ahwaz for one week from 25, 3,1388 till 31,3,1388. Statistical analyses shown that, GOCART has a good capability for simulating PM10.
