Dust Over Arabian Peninsula - March 24th, 2012

The lighter colored streaks over the blue Karabogas Bay (upper right corner) are plumes of dust blowing from the mainland, across the bay, and over the Caspian Sea. Also of interest in the sea is a milky blue color in the lower right quadrant, probably a mix of sediments and phytoplankton – as sediments add nutrients to the water, they encourage phytoplankton growth.
