Thin Veil of Dust Over Aral Sea

Aral Sea – April 3rd, 2013

A thin veil of dust can be seen blowing across the Aral Sea Basin. The dust is easiest to spot over the bright turquoise waters of the southwestern basin. Dust storms are becoming more frequent in this area due to desertification and the shrinking of the sea due to riverwater diversion.
