A low pressure system is centred over the North Atlantic Ocean south-west of Iceland. Saharan dust blown off the West African coast disperses over the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary, Madeira and Azores archipelagos. Areas of snow cover can be seen from Greenland to Morocco. Land-fast ice and sea ice is evident off eastern Greenland. Sediment from river run-off colours coastal waters. Aircraft contrails, lee waves and cloud streets are also visible in this image.
