Dust Over Iraq and Syria

33.5N 36.3E

March 23rd, 2013 Category: Dust Storms

Middle East – March 23rd, 2013

A plume of dust hangs over Iraq, near the border with Syria, on the right side of this image. The dust spreads southward over the Arabian Peninsula, but does not reach west to the mountainous Sinai Peninsula and Egypt (left). A more frequent recurrence of dust storms can be a sign of desertification and climate change.
