Good Vegetation Index in Southern India and Sri Lanka

9.3N 80.0E

January 17th, 2012 Category: Vegetation Index

India - January 3rd, 2012

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of southern India and the island nation of Sri Lanka, separated by the Palk Strait. The index is generally good throughout, as shown by the green false-coloring.

Some areas of high photosynthetic activity, appearing rusty-red in color, can be observed near the coast, particularly the southwestern coast of India. A few, very sparse patches of low activity, yellow in color, can be observed.
