Iraq and Kuwait – July 13th, 2012

Two plumes of dust can be seen blowing between Kuwait and the valley by the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, in Iraq. The plume of dust to the west is lighter – almost white in color – and wider, while the plume to the east is the same tan color as the surrounding desert and narrower. Visible by the river edge, in the Persian Gulf, are sediments near the mouth of the Shatt al-Arab.
