Dust Storm in Bodélé Depression

16.7N 16.4E

October 23rd, 2012 Category: Dust Storms

Chad – October 21st, 2012

Light, almost white dust can be seen blowing about the Bodélé Depression, located at the southern edge of the Sahara Desert, in Chad, in north central Africa. It is the lowest point in the country. Dust storms from the Bodélé Depression occur on average about 100 days per year. As the wind sweeps between the Tibesti and the Ennedi Mountains in Northern Chad, it is channeled across the depression. Here, the dust can be seen spreading past Lake Chad (green, bottom center).
