A dust storm blew through parts of Algeria and Mali in early July 2011. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image on July 10, 2011.
In places, the airborne dust forms a camel-colored cloud thick enough to completely hide the land surface below, especially near the Algeria-Mali border. The dark land surface northeast of the storm is the relatively high, rocky ground of Tassili n’Ajjer National Park where stone forests stretch skyward.
Source points for the dust storm are not obvious in this image, but a massive sand sea known as Erg Chech covers parts of northeastern Mali and western Algeria. The shifting dunes of this region provide plentiful material for dust storms.

Thick dust blew off the coasts of Sudan and Eritrea in early July 2011. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image on July 12, 2011.
The thickest dust plume blows in a clockwise arc off the coast of Sudan. To the south, a large veil of dust hangs over the Red Sea, spanning the length of Eritrea’s coastline. In the south, some dust extends all the way across the Red Sea to Yemen. In the north, however, thick dust mostly stops short of reaching Saudi Arabia.
This dust storm blew over Eritrea at the same time that nation had to cope with another natural disaster: the eruption of Nabro Volcano.
