November 7th, 2012 Category: Deserts, Dust Storms, Mountains

China – November 6th, 2012

Dust continues to blow about the Taklamakan Desert, in northwestern China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The tall mountains surrounding the desert on three sides – the Kunlun Mountains to the south, the Pamir Mountains to the west, and the Tian Shan Mountains to the north – prevent the dust from spreading beyond the confines of the Tarim Basin.
