Dust South of Bay of Arguin, Mauritania

19.2N 16.4W

July 3rd, 2012 Category: Dust Storms, Phytoplankton

USA – July 2nd, 2012

A plume of dust blows southwest off the coast of Mauritania. The dust seems to cut diagonally across the southern border of the Bay of Arguin, the green bay near the center of the image. The green coloring of the waters is due to phytoplankton growth.
