July 11, 2007 - Saharan Dust Plume

February 18, 2008
A dust plume hovered over the borders of (clockwise from the top) Algeria, Mali, and Mauritania, in Africa. The MODIS flying on NASA's Terra satellite took this picture on July 8, 2007.

In this image, the dust plume appears as a buff-colored arc. The plume is diffuse, making it difficult to identify the source points for this Saharan dust storm.
