The Ghibli, a local name for the Sirocco in Libya, is a hot and dry south or southeasterly that stirs up dust and sand. These troublesome winds can last for days and change the desert landscape by rearranging vast quantities of sand. In The English Patient, the sandstorm buried the jeeps, which had to be dug out when it ended, before the occupants ran out of air.

Like other winds, the Ghibli has been used for advertising, for instance, a Ghibli vacuum cleaner.
