On June 24, 2003, the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWiFS) captured this image of southern Africa showing numerous dust plumes streaming oceanward from the
Namibia coastline— a pattern that previously collected SeaWiFS imagery indicates is common in this part of the world at this time of the year.
