Yemen - July 14th, 2011

Dust can be seen blowing over Yemen and the southwestern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. The dust crosses the Gulf of Aden (lower right) and the Red Sea (upper left). The Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, connecting the sea and gulf, is obscured by clouds and dust.

Yemen can be divided geographically into four main regions: the coastal plains in the west (visible here although partially veiled by dust), the western highlands (appearing as a large brown area in this image), the eastern highlands, and the Rub al Khali sandy desert in the east (partially visible at the top right).
