English: Strong winds whip thick clouds of dust across the Bolivian highlands in this photo-like image. Much of the pale dust along the southern edge of the storm is coming from small white spots, salt pans (dry lake beds), south and south-west of Salar de Uyuni, but little or no dust appears to be blowing off the large salt pans, Salar de Uyuni and Salar de Coipasa. Instead, the dust is multi-colored, pointing to a variety of different soil types. Though the region is typically dry, El Niño brought even drier conditions in late 2009 and 2010. By July, much of Bolivia was in the grip of severe drought, particularly in the south-east. The lack of rainfall may have contributed to the dusty conditions seen in the image.
The Cordillera Central, or Central Mountains, define the south-eastern edge of the Altiplano. The Bolivian Chaco, a flat, semi-arid grassland/savanna, extends east from the mountains. In this image, the Chaco is covered in a sea of low clouds that seep into mountain valleys along the Cordillera Central. With an elevation more than 3,659 meters above mean sea level, the Altiplano is much higher than the Chaco to the east. Dust from the high Altiplano soars over the mountains and clouds in the south-east corner of the image.
