Dust Storms Over Persian Gulf

February 28, 2013
A dust storm was blowing over a wide area of the Middle East on May 28, 2003. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image shows a haze of dust over (clockwise from top right) Iran, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq. The dust is especially thick in the center of the Persian Gulf. Credit: Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
