Dust Spreading from Persian Gulf to Caspian and Mediterranean Seas – May 11th, 201232.3N 39.4E
Dust spreads over Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Jordan (clockwise from upper left). A thin veil of dust can be observed over the Persian Gulf, through which sediments from the Shatt al-Arab are partially visible. However, the dust is densest to the west, as it spreads over Syria and Jordan and towards Israel/Palestine and Lebanon. Some dust can even be spreading over the Mediterranean Sea (upper left quadrant), by the border with Turkey, and northwards over the Caspian Sea (upper right quadrant).
