Dust South of Iran - March 20th, 2012

A massive dust storm has been raging over the Arabian Peninsula over the last few days (click here for previous images). Here, a plume of dust can be seen off the coast of Oman (left edge) and parallel to the coast of Iran (upper left) and Pakistan (upper right). Crosswinds have created several parallel rows of dust perpendicular to the main plume.
