Myanmar and Thailand - November 29th, 2009

Myanmar and Thailand - November 29th, 2009

This FAPAR image focuses on southern Myanmar (west) and Thailand (east), both of which share the northern half of the long peninsula stretching through the center. FAPAR stands for Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation, which corresponds to the vegetation index of the area.

Most of the peninsula and land north of it appear red to dark green, an indication of high photosynthetic activity. The eastern part of Thailand, in the upper right quadrant, however, appears yellow, indicating low activity.
