Although the skies have cleared a bit, there are still substantial amounts of airborne dust (brownish pixels) evident in this Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) image of eastern Asia, acquired on March 25, 2002. Note also the windblown dust well out over the Pacific Ocean in the lower righthand corner of this scene.
