Dust Storm over the Red Sea
November 26, 2007
Another dust storm blew off the coast of Sudan on July 4, 2006. The MODIS on the Aqua satellite took this picture the same day. In this image, a thick plume of tan dust blows off the coast, near the border with Eritrea, gradually fanning out as it moves over the Red Sea. Another plume blows off the coast of Sudan to the north.
