A Cloud Of Tan Dust From Saudi Arabia
Photograph - Photograph
October 13, 2010 - A cloud of tan dust from Saudi Arabia blows over the Red Sea just south of the Sinai Peninsula and the Nile Delta. Smoke plumes from fires can be seen sweeping to the northwest, leaving gray tendrils across the Mediterranean Sea. To the north, a wide ribbon of thin haze overlays the deep blue water of the Mediterranean. It is possible that smoke from the fires may contribute to this haze, but the primary source is most likely dust blowing north and east from the deserts of Egypt, which lie to the west. A phytoplankton bloom brings milky swirls of turquoise blue and peacock green to the waters just off the northern Egyptian coast.
