Libya – March 30th, 2013

In what has become an almost constant occurrence in Libya this month, once again, a thick plume of dust blows across the northern part of the country and out over the Mediterranean. Here, the plume is thickest over the Gulf of Sidra – so dense, in fact, that it appears almost as an extension of Libya’s land. It extends far north over the sea, between Greece (above, center) and Sicily (above, left edge). Increased frequency and intensity of dust storms is a sign of climate change.
