Dust Off West Coast of Africa - September 19th, 2010

Over the last couple of days, a thick cloud of dust has beenĀ  blowing off the west coast of Africa. Here, however, the dust plume appears less dense (click here for previous article).

The dust is blowing towards the southwest, slipping below the Canary Islands but moving over the Ras Nouadhibou Peninsula of Morocco/Western Sahara and Mauritania.
