Vegetation Index by Rivers of Western Africa12.4N 16.4W
This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of the Gambia, Senegal and Guinea Bissau, in Western Africa. The index in Gambia and northern Senegal is quite low (yellow), with areas of good (green) photosynthetic activity visible only near the banks of the Gambia River.
To the south, the vegetation index is generally good, particularly near the coast and the Geba River, on on the offshore islands. Here, the distribution of activity appears to be the opposite of the pattern to the north: lower activity is visible by the banks of the rivers.
