The Canary islands 🇪🇸 are experiencing a strong episode of Calima. The hot east winds coming from Africa transport big amounts of dust. Airports on the islands had to be temporarily closed due to low visibility.
This Sentinel-3 🛰️🇪🇺 capture from 22 February show Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria being hit by Calima.
▪ Gran Canaria is one of Spain’s Canary Islands, off northwestern Africa. It's known for its black lava and white sand beaches. Its southern beaches include bustling Playa del Inglés and Puerto Rico as well as quieter Puerto de Mogán and San Agustín. In the north, capital city Las Palmas is a major stop for cruise ships and duty-free shopping. The island’s interior is rural and mountainous.
