This FAPAR image focuses on part of border area of Argentina (left two-thirds of image) and Uruguay (right third). The Uruguay River provides the border between the two. Parallel to the Uruguay River, to its left, is the ParanĂ¡ River. Both rivers join together to form the Rio de la Plata Estuary.

The vegetation index of the area varies from low (yellow) to good (green) to high (rusty red). The index increases as one moves northward, and larger areas of a high index can be observed in the upper part of the full image, while larger areas of a low index can be seen in the lower part.
