Dust over Cape Verde - June 23rd, 2009

Dust continues to blow off the west coast of Africa, over the Atlantic Ocean (click here for previous article).

In this image, a thick plume of yellow dust sweeps over and around the islands of Cape Verde, off the coast of Senegal but belonging to Portugal.

In the full image, some Kármán vortex streets, repeating pattern of swirling vortices, are present to the north of the islands.
