Dust Storm over the Red Sea
This page contains archived content and is no longer being updated. At the time of publication, it represented the best available science. However, more recent observations and studies may have rendered some content obsolete.
Another dust storm blew off the coast of Sudan over the Red Sea on August 5, 2006. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying onboard NASA’s Aqua satellite took this picture the same day. In this image, the dust appears in beige. Multiple plumes of varying width and opacity all blow toward the east in a slightly clockwise direction over the Red Sea.
