Dust Off the Coast of Oman

actual image size: 24cm x 32cm


Dust blows toward the southeast, over the island of Jazirat Masirah. Near the coast of mainland Oman, the dust forms distinct plumes. Farther from shore, it fans out and forms a thin, nearly transparent veil. A long line of small clouds fringes the eastern edge of the dust veil, with clearer skies east of that cloud line.In the west, cloud and dust-free skies allow MODIS a view of the sand dunes of the Arabian Peninsula's Empty Quarter, or Rub' al Khali. Unperturbed by winds in this image, the Empty Quarter dunes resemble a giant fingerprint.
