Dust Off Coast of Senegal - January 26th, 2010

Dust Off Coast of Senegal - January 26th, 2010

Dust blows southwestward off the coast of western Africa, from the Cap-Vert peninsula in Senegal southward. Offshore, it blows under the Cape Verde islands, on the left side of the image, while on the mainland it covers parts of Senegal, the Gambia and Guinea-Bissau.

It does not, however, extend northward of the Cap-Vert peninsula and into Mauritania, which is visible in the full image. There, sediments can be seen along the coastline, and a bright green phytoplankton bloom is visible in the Bay of Arguin.
