Egypt – April 8th, 2013

A plume of dust sweeps over the coast of Egypt, veiling the Nile Delta and the Sinai Peninsula, and northwards over the Mediterranean Sea, over and past Cyprus to Turkey (visible at the top of the full image). Middle Eastern countries on the east coast of the sea, such as Israel, are also being affected. More frequent dust storms are a sign of desertification and climate change.
