Dust Over Arabian Peninsula - March 18th, 2012

This image of the northern part of the Arabian Peninsula offers another look at the dust storm that has been affecting the area over the last few days (click here for previous images). Here, dust covers northern Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Kuwait, so thick that it obscures the ground below. The Persian Gulf, however, is partially visible through the blowing sands in the upper right quadrant, as is Qatar, at the center of the right edge.
