Dust plume

Dust plume

A plume of dust originating from Australia’s dry interior, reaches over New South Wales and off the east coast.

The plume is thickest between Sydney (below) and Newcastle (above), although shorter, wispier plumes are also present as far north as the border with the state of Queensland.

The close-up focuses on the large plume stretching far out over the Pacific Ocean. Ripples, like waves of dust, make it possible to see the air currents.
