Dust and Smoke Over West Africa - March 22nd, 2012

Dust continues to blow off the coast of West Africa (click here for previous images), although the storm appears to be calming in intensity. Here, a thin veil of dust can be seen blowing off the coast of Western Sahara and Morocco, and over the Canary Islands. Visible in the upper part of the image, unaffected by the dust storm, are part of the Iberian Peninsula and the Strait of Gibraltar, separating the continents of Europe and Africa.
