Close-up of Iraq

Dust can be seen blowing over Iraq, as well as over Kuwait and the northern reaches of the Persian Gulf, in this image of the Middle East. The close-up offers a more detailed view of the dust where it is thickest – over the valley around the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The dust does not spread northward to the Caspian Sea, partially visible at the top of the image.
