Saharan dust

Title: Saharan dust storm

Description: On 6 February 2021, the Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellite caught the Saharan dust storm over parts of Europe, represented here by the OLCI based colour image as well as the dedicated synergy processing for aerosol optical depth, showing the decreased transparency in the air (increased AOD value) caused by the sand dust particles.
