26.2S 141.9E

July 8th, 2011 Category: Rivers, Vegetation Index

Australia - July 6th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of part of Australia’s Channel Country. The land on the floodplain of the multi-channelled Cooper Creek, formed by the joining of the Thomson and Barcoo Rivers, shows a good index (green).

The rest of the surrounding landscape shows low levels of photosynthetic activity (light yellow). The large grey area west of the river, where no vegetation index data is available, is Lake Yamma Yamma (also know as Lake Mackillop).
