Dust Plume by Benghazi, Libya

March 20th, 2013 Category: Dust Storms

Libya – March 19th, 2013

Northern Libya has been affected by dust storms since early March (click here for previous images). Here, a veil of dust hangs over the eastern part of the Gulf of Sidra (left) and over the Jebel al Akhdar, a mountain range by the country’s coast (visible here as a dark green region). One thicker plume stands out amidst the dusty haze, blowing off the coast near the city of Benghazi.
