Dust Storm in Pakistan and Afghanistan

March 1, 2013
On July 4, 2003, a dust storm was blowing over the deserts of southern Afghanistan (top) and the rugged terrain of northwest Pakistan (bottom). The light tan color of the dust makes waves, swirls, ripples, and curves over the dark brown and gray terrain below. At bottom is the Arabian Sea.
