Sweden and Finland - June 2nd, 2010

This FAPAR image focuses on the vegetation index of Sweden, west of the Gulf of Bothnia, and Finland, east of the gulf, during the European summer.

Both countries show generally good photosynthetic activity by their green color. Some areas, particularly those near the mountains to the North, have lower levels (yellow), while others to the South show higher levels (red).

A phytoplankton bloom is also visible in the lower left hand corner, although any photosynthetic activity from the microscopic plantlife composing the bloom is not depicted with the false-color imagery as occurs with that on land.
