NASA scientists have created a map of the dust clouds that are located around the Earth, but invisible to the eye. The project was implemented with the help of the Earth Observatory. This writes Nacked science.

These clouds consist of salt, which comes from the sea, black carbon soot from forest fires and dust emissions from heavy industry.

In the course of work on the map, the scientists combined data obtained from different sensors including MODIS satellites Aqua and Terra. To add the image colors were used data of ground-based sensors.

Due to the color to distinguish the nature of the origin of fine particles. Red color denotes mass over North America, who appeared out of the smoke from forest fires.

Blue happen from typhoons in Japan, which was raised in the atmosphere of sea salt.
