West Africa – January 7th, 2013

Dust from the Sahara Desert blows off the coast of West Africa. Here, the dust is thickest off the coast of Senegal, north of the Cap Vert Peninsula, and spreads westward over the Cape Verde Islands (upper left edge). Visible south of the peninsula are sediments from rivers in Senegal and the Gambia including the Saloum, Gambia and Casamance (north to south) Rivers.
