Chad – March 19th, 2013

A cloud of dust hangs over southern Chad (center right) and the Central African Republic (lower right), southeast of Lake Chad (upper left quadrant). A hazy area can also be seen to the south of the lake, in Nigeria and Cameroon. This haze may also be caused by dust, or smoke from agricultural fires, or a combination of both.
