Guinea Bissau and Guinea – February 3rd, 2013

A thick haze hangs over Guinea Bissau, Guineau, Sierra Leone and Liberia (along coast from top to bottom), in West Africa. The haze is likely a combination of smoke from agricultural fires and dust from the Sahara Desert. Visible through the smoke are sediments spilling forth from the mouth of the Geba River, in Guinea Bissau (upper left corner).
