China – March 10th, 2013

A cloud of dust that has swept across northeastern China from near the border with Mongolia can be seen stretching towards Beijing and the Bohai Sea (upper right). The dust intermingles with haze, in the lower half of the image, reaching the coast by Shanghai (right). The haze may be a combination of smog, dust and other forms of air pollution.
