Chad – March 23rd, 2013

Dust blows across the Sahara Desert, creating a thin veil over Lake Chad (below) and south of the Aïr Mountains, a triangular massif in northern Niger (left edge). While the dust cross the southernmost part of the Aïr range, it does not affect the Tibesti Mountains, another volcanic range in Chad, to the northeast.
