Egypt and Libya – April 7th, 2013

Dust blows over the Mediterranean Sea from two main points. The first is a long plume blowing northward from the west edge of the Nile Delta that passes between the islands of Cyprus (right) and Crete (left). The second is a plume blowing northeastward off the coast of Libya, just beyond the eastern end of the Jebel Akhdar mountain range (left).
