Dust off Northern Coast of Turkey - October 13th, 2009

Dust off Northern Coast of Turkey - October 13th, 2009

A plume of dust originating in southern Turkey archs northwards, across the country and over the Black Sea, into Georgia and southern Russia. The plume fans out as it moves to the north, covering much of the eastern end of the sea.

In the full image, dust hovers over Syria as well. Although it remains clear of Lake Assad, it seems to follow the path of the Euphrates river, past its confluence with the Khabur River, towards Iraq.
