West Africa – February 2nd, 2013

Dust from the Sahara Desert blows off the coast of Mauritania, Senegal, the Gambia and Guinea Bissau (top to bottom, right side of image), towards the Cape Verde islands (upper left quadrant). As the dust appears thickest offshore, the Senegal River (upper right, forming the border between Senegal and Mauritania), the Gambia River (center of coastline) and the Geba River (lower part of coastline, marked by a wide, sediment-filled estuary) can be observed.
