Argentina and Uruguay - February 1st, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of Argentina and part of Uruguay, near the Rio de la Plata Estuary. The index is highest (rusty red) west and northwest of the estuary.

While most of the land in Uruguay (upper right quadrant) and the province of Buenos Aires shows good photosynthetic activity (green), the index becomes lower (yellow) as one moves south into Patagonia.
