April 13th, 2012 Category: Dust Storms

Niger, Nigeria and Chad - April 12th, 2012

Dust continues to hang in the air near Lake Chad (click here for previous image), in Niger, Nigeria and Chad. Unlike the last time this dust storm was observed, here there is a concentrated plume of dust in an almost vertical line to the west of the lake. The lake itself is only lightly veiled by the particles of sand blowing about in the atmosphere above it.
