Dust Blowing Offshore by Djibouti-Somalia Border

11.5N 42.5E

July 2nd, 2012 Category: Dust Storms

Red Sea and Gulf of Aden – June 28th, 2012

The skies over the Red Sea (upper left) and the Gulf of Aden (right), as well as the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, which connects the two, are veiled by dust. However, a thicker plume is also visible blowing offshore by the border between Djibouti (left) and Somalia (right). The plume appears composed of three main parallel streaks of dust, caused by air currents. While the plume blows to the northeast, over the Gulf of Aden, it does not reach across the gulf to Yemen, on the Arabian Peninsula (upper right).
