West Africa – October 10th, 2012

Dust from the Sahara Desert continues to be carried off the coast of West Africa and westward over the Atlantic Ocean by strong winds. The dust flies off the shores of Senegal (above) and Mauritania (below). Here, some parallel rows of wave clouds can be seen amidst the veil of dust, west of the Bay of Arguin.
