Libya – March 8th, 2013

A plume of dust extends far off the coast of Libya and over the Mediterranean Sea, reaching past Cyprus and towards the southern part of mainland Greece (above). The dust originates in the Libyan Desert, then blows over the  Jebel Akhdar (meaning Green Mountain), a heavily forested, fertile upland area in the northeastern part of the country by the coast, before reaching across the Mediterranean.
