Dust Over Arabian Peninsula - March 18th, 2012

A thick cloud of dust blows over Iraq, Kuwait and northern Saudi Arabia. The dust obscures much of the Persian Gulf (right), virtually all of the valley by the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and impedes the view of Lake Tharthar (left). This dust storm has been moving huge amounts of sand and dust particles about the Middle East and Asia over the last week (click here for previous images).
