The authors invested efforts to develop a procedure of estimating the airborne salt level on the basis of available meteorological information. In this study, we analyzed wind direction and speed data provided by the Meteorological Observatory in Sanin to estimate the airborne salt level and compare with the monitoring data for the airborne salt level over 2 years in order to evaluate the estimation precision of the proposed method. The estimation results showed reasonable agreement with the measured airborne salt level. It is confirmed that the proposed concise evaluation procedure based on only wind direction and speed information is useful as estimation method of airborne salt level.
