This FAPAR image focuses on Italy, including its islands of Sicily (lower right corner) and Sardinia (bottom, center). Other visible islands include Corsica (north of Sardinia), belonging to France, and two of Spain’s Balearic Islands: Majorca and Minorca (lower left corner).

Situated beyond the northern slopes of the Alps are France (left), Switzerland (center) and Austria (right). The peaks of the Alps are capped in snow and appear white, while most of the image is green, indicating a good vegetation index. Some areas of high photosynthetic activity (red) are visible, particularly in France.
