In this Aug. 19, 2013 photo, Gibraltar is seen from La Linea de la Concepcion, Spain. Spain has long laid claim to Gibraltar, and the tiny territory on the southern tip of the Iberian peninsula is the source of occasional diplomatic friction between Madrid and London. The latest dispute erupted last month when barge workers dumped 70 boulder-sized concrete blocks into the sea just off of Gibraltars lone airport runway _ creating an artificial reef in the name of environmental protection. It triggered the most notable British-Spanish crisis over The Rock since 2004, when Spain protested festivities celebrating the 300th anniversary of the Anglo-Dutch invasion of Gibraltar.

Each summer, microscopic dust particles kicked up by African sandstorms blow thousands of miles (kilometers) across the Atlantic to arrive in the Caribbean, limiting airplane pilots visibility to just a few miles and contributing to the suffering of asthmatics trying to draw breath. The phenomenon has been around as long as there's been sand in the Sahara Desert. But its attracting ever more attention from regional scientists who say the clouds have grown, even if theres no global consensus on the issue. (AP Photo/NASA Goddard MODIS Rapid Response Team)
