Iraq - April 15th, 2012

Air currents blow a plume of dust in an arched shape, towards the north and then counter-clockwise towards the southwest, over the northern part of the Persian Gulf. To the north of the plume, sediments from the Shatt al’Arab River can be seen entering the gulf, off the coast of Iraq.
