Dust Cloud over Sea of Japan

Dust Cloud over Sea of Japan

Desert dust continued blowing out from mainland China on March 22, 2002, across the Korean peninsula and Japan before heading out over the open Pacific Ocean. This true-color Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) image shows the region affected. The dust appears to be flying lower than the clouds in this scene.
