West Africa - April 28th, 2012

A thick cloud of dust can be seen blowing off the coast of West Africa, by the Mauritania-Senegal border. The dust is situated just north of the Cap Vert Peninsula, on which the Senegalese capital of Dakar is located. To the south, sediments from the Geba River, in Guinea Bissau, can be seen entering the Atlantic Ocean.
