Early Morning Dust Storm in Kangerlussuaq

April 17, 2013
Dust storm and early morning sun in Kangerlussuaq. The fine sand from the glacial deposits gets easily wind-borne and gets into computers, cameras, and your eyes. The valley that runs from the Greenland Ice Sheet to Kangerlussuaq is named Sandflugtdalen, which means valley of flying sand and refers to the obvious occasional dust storm down the valley.
