Vegetation Index of Canada from James Bay to Great Lakes – July 24th, 201050.4N 84.3W
This FAPAR image shows part of Canada, from James Bay (above) to the Great Lakes on the USA border (below). The vegetation index seems to increase as one moves southward, as the color changes from yellow, to green, to red.
The area with the lowest photosynthetic activity is Akimiski Island, the semi-circular shaped island near the coast of James Bay (upper right quadrant).
The parts of the image with the highest photosynthetic activity are around the shores of Lake Superior, particularly around the southern coastline.
