A sandstorm or dust storm is a type of storm where weather conditions caused sand or dust particles to become airborne.

On Vulcan sandstorms were a frequent occurrence, Nirak once mistook an approaching army for a sandstorm. After that army decimated the city he was helping guard, Nirak's name entered the Vulcan language as fool. (ENT episode: "The Forge")

Philippa Georgiou and Michael Burnham once encountered a sandstorm on Crepusculan homeworld. (DSC episode: "The Vulcan Hello")

Another world that had frequent sandstorms was Deneb II. (TOS novel: Devil's Bargain)
