Kármán Vortices

Kármán Vortices

Dust blows off the western coast of Africa, over the Canary Islands (upper right quadrant) and the shores of Morocco/Western Sahara (above) and Mauritania (below).

In the full image and the close-up, the dust reaches further south to the islands of Cape Verde. There, clouds forming Kármán Vortex Streets extend in a spiralling, paisley pattern from the islands to the southwest.
