Thar: Another Encroaching Desert
Pall of Dust Covers Pakistan-India Border Region
The nearest volcanoes from the Thar Desert on the Pakistan-India Border Region are about 1,000km away. And there aren’t nearly as many of them as in Iceland. The area won’t receive a significant amount of the volcanic ash from Eyjafjallajökull Eruption, but there would be plenty of sand and dust to compensate for the airborne particles.
