Mauritania and Senegal – July 11th, 2012

A plume of dust blows off the coast of Mauritania, north of the border with Senegal. The border is marked by the green line of the Senegal River. The dust obscures the waters of the Bay of Arguin, which usually appear bright green from phytoplankton growth (click here for more images of the bay).
