Libya – March 8th, 2013

Libya’s “Green Mountain”, the Jebel al-Akhdar, can be seen through a plume of dust that blows across the coast and over the Mediterranean Sea. Dust blowing over the Mediterranean is a rather common phenomenon, as strong winds pick up particles from the Sahara Desert and carry them northward over the sea.
