Libya - March 30th, 2011

The Haruj Volcanic Field appears as a brown rounded area near the left edge of this image of Libya. Most of the rest of the image is covered by sandy desert, although the Tibesti Mountains can also be seen in the lower part of the full image.

Another range is visible near the coast at the top of the image: the Al Jabel Al Akhdar, meaning the Green Mountain. East of the range, two plumes of dust can be seen blowing northwards over the Mediterranean Sea.
