Dust Storm off Iceland

Dust Storm off Iceland

A low-pressure system north of the United Kingdom was blowing dust off Iceland and sending it southward over the Atlantic Ocean on Oct. 5, 2004. The dust plume (light brown) is easily distinguished from the bright, white clouds in this true-color scene, acquired by the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS).
