Indeed. Those same winds (the scirocco) carry red African sand well into the middle of Med. One February day we got absolutely covered with it in Crete.On our visit to Venice last summer, I was discussing the water and tides with the locals. They said every winter seasonal winds from Africa blow the Mediterranean north and raise the water level as much as a meter. They installed a tidal dike that is raised each winter to reduce the damage these high waters do to the lagoon and the city.
I had a friend out of Prince Rupert BC. who had sailed around to the North Coast from England and built a boat in Rupert and named it Suhali. When I asked him where the name came from he said he got it from Africa where he learned about it after shovelling the sand off of his decks.

I don't know, maybe someone out east does. I assumed (looking at the pic) that the cold weather overcame the bubblers, or that stopped. The cold water/ice froze in a thru-hull, dooming the boat.I need to find out how to capture this so I can put it on our facebook for our friends up north. Did it blow a thru-hull?
I just heard about the whiting effect here in the Abaco’s. Apparently the water saturation of calcium carbonate gets heavy and the precipitate falls out in a white cloudy area in the water. We may be close to having it happen near Treasure Cay since the water has been milky for the last two weeks. It was very clear just before Christmas.Saw or read a piece recently on the wind blown African sands being a significant contributor to the make up of the Bahamas
