West Africa – February 1st, 2013

Dust from the Sahara Desert blows westward, off the coast of West Africa, including the countries of Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, the Gambia and Guinea Bissau (along coast, from top to bottom). Partially visible through the dust are bodies of water such as the Bay of Arguin (above, in Mauritania) and the mouth of the Geba River (below, in Guinea Bissau).
