Image Caption: Hot, dry winds that blow out of the northeast or east primarily during the winter are the
probable cause for the dust blowing out of Mauritania and into the Atlantic Ocean. These
clouds of dust can extend several hundreds of kilometers out into the Atlantic. The winds
are part of a low pressure center that forms on the northern coast of the Gulf of Guinea.
