Argentina – July 7th, 2012

Dust, likely composed of salt and other minerals, blows due southward off the salt flats located near the northern shores of Mar Chiquita, a saline lake in the Argentine province of Córdoba. Visible to the northwest are two other large salt flats: the Salinas Grandes. A plume of smoke from a wildfire near the foothills of the Andes can be observed north of those salt flats, at the top left. The smoke is blowing to the south, similar to the dust.
