Dust Blowing Over Canary Islands and Madeira Archipelago

32.7N 16.9W

June 28th, 2012 Category: Dust Storms

Spain and Morocco – June 26th, 2012

Dust from the Sahara Desert blows off the coast of Mauritania, Western Sahara and Morocco, over the Canary Islands and the Madeira Archipelago (north of the former), and far north over the Atlantic Ocean. Here, the dust appears thickest in the lower left quadrant and just north of the Madeira Archipelago. Although the dust does not reach the Iberian Peninsula, it is not far from the coast, and some can be seen blowing towards the Strait of Gibraltar.
