USA - December 20th, 2009

This FAPAR image shows the Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation of the east coast of the  southern USA, including the states of (from top to bottom) Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

In FAPAR images, the color spectrum over land runs from red (1.0), to green, to yellow and white (0.0). Here, most of the land visible is light green, indicating good to average photosynthetic activity. The land in Florida appears slightly darker green than that in the other states, indicating a somewhat higher vegetation index.
