Dust Over Gulf of Sidra and Mediterranean Sea, Libya

March 13th, 2013 Category: Dust Storms

Libya – March 7th, 2013

Dust blows off the coast of Libya and over the Mediterranean Sea. The cloud is thinner over the Gulf of Sidra (left edge to center) and thicker northwest of Benghazi, the second largest city in the country. The airborne particles obscure Libya’s vegetated northern coastal region. Visible by the bottom edge, in the lower left quadrant, as a brown area amidst the sands of the Libyan Desert, is the Haruj Volcanic Field.
