West Africa - April 6th, 2012

Smoke blows off the coast of West Africa near the border between Guinea and Sierra Leone. Extremely arid conditions have been causing problems with wildfires and dust storms in the region over the last month (click here for previous images). Visible further up the coast are sediments pouring into the Atlantic Ocean from the Geba and other rivers in Guinea Bissau.
