Argentina and Chile - January 1st, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the great contrast in the vegetation index of Chile and Argentina. In southern Argentina, in Patagonia, the index is very low (yellow to white, although some patches are white due to snow), while in southern Chile the index is good (green) to high (rusty red).

In the full image, this contrast swaps sides, with the low index present in the desert of northern Chile, and the good to high index present in the pampas of Argentina.
