NOAA Photo Library Image - wea01409

Aerial view of the beginning of a dust storm over the prairie lands east of Denver. Northerly winds are removing topsoil and then the clouds of dust were raised as high as 16,000 feet by colliding southerly winds. Prevailing west winds then carried some of the dust as far east as the Atlantic coast. In: "Monthly Weather Review," June 1936, p. 197.
