Chad - April 11th, 2012

A mix of dust and smoke creates a hazy veil over parts of Chad (right), Niger (above) and Nigeria (below), in the vicinity of Lake Chad. Extremely dry conditions in West Africa over the last month have been causing many problems with wildfires and dust storms in the region. Increased arid conditions and desertification in the area are also causing Lake Chad to shrink.
