V-shaped dust flow around Hanish Islands

Dust blows off the coasts of Somalia, Djibouti, and Eritrea (lower part of image, from east to west), as well as Yemen and Saudi Arabia (above).

The particles  are blowing west over the Gulf of Aden and then in a northwesterly direction over the Red Sea. The airborne particles over the Red Sea are making wavelike patterns off the coast of Eritrea and V-shaped flows around Yemen’s Hanish Islands (see close-up images).
