Egypt - December 22nd, 2010

Dust from the Middle East, probably originating in Syria, blows towards the southwest, across the Mediterranean Sea, towards Egypt.

The dust reaches the Nile River Delta, the fertile green triangular area situated at the coast. Sediments can be seen along the shoreline.
