Dust storm off Alaska
Dust storms don't only occur near the desert. On Nov. 5, 2005, this storm of glacial sediments was spotted over the Gulf of Alaska. Glacial sediments form when “the movement of glaciers grind the rocks below them to fine silt,” according to NASA. This image was taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer(MODIS) on the Aqua satellite.
