Dust Blowing off the Coast of Pakistan

April 30, 2013
Dust, likely mingled with smoke from agricultural fires, blew off the coast of Pakistan on May 13, 2006. As dust hovered over the coastline, the people of both Pakistan and India struggled with a heat wave that sent temperatures above 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit), according to news reports. Rainfall the following day brought lower temperatures to the region. Credit: Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory
