West Africa – December 16th, 2012

Dust blows off the coast of Western Sahara (above) and Mauritania (below), north and south of the green-watered Bay of Arguin. The plume north of the bay blows to the east-northeast, while the one to the south blows east-southeast. Visible in the upper right corner are the Canary Islands, while the Cape Verde Islands can be seen at the lower left. Both archipelagos are fully visible in the full image.
