Thick Dust Over Red Sea

September 8th, 2012 Category: Dust Storms

Red Sea – September 1st, 2012

A thick cloud of dust spreads over the Red Sea. The dust appears to originate on the African continent, although dust storms on the Arabian Peninsula are also very common. Here, the dust is thickest off the coast of Sudan (above), although it also blows over the coast of Eritrea and spreads southward towards the Bab-el-Mandeb strait.
