Dust Storm over the Persian Gulf

May 2, 2013
Dust lingered in the skies over the Persian Gulf on May 18, 2007. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite took this image one day after a dust storm started over Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iran, and Iraq. In this image, buff-colored plumes of dust sweep from northwest to southeast over the water. Credit: NASA image courtesy Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team at NASA GSFC
