India and Pakistan – December 28th, 2012

A dust storm that has been blowing off the coast of Iran and Pakistan sends dust and sand particles over the mouth of the Indus River and over the Arabian Sea. Over land, the dust hangs in the air by the Pakistan-India border, partially veiling the Rann of Kutch wetlands and the Gulf of Kutch to their south. The gulf of Khambhat, in the lower right corner, remains unaffected.

In the full image, a series of wave clouds can be seen near where the Indus River enters the Arabian Sea.
