UK - June 10th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of the United Kingdom and Ireland and part of southern Norway. A bright green and blue phytoplankton bloom can be observed in the North Sea between the two countries.

Through the spotty cloud-cover, the United Kingdom and Ireland show a good (green) to high (rusty red) vegetation index. Southern Norway’s index appears mostly good with some areas of low activity (yellow).
