Dust Storm over the Mediterranean Sea

Dust Storm over the Mediterranean Sea

Strong winds again blew dust from the Sahara Desert over the Mediterranean Sea and Into Southern Europe. These winds may also be responsible for the sediments, which appear bright blue, that swirl just off the coast of Italy (towards the top of the image).
