41.8S 173.5E

November 5th, 2011 Category: Vegetation Index

New Zealand - November 4th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of New Zealand’s North Island (above) and South Island (below). The two islands are separated by the Cook Strait, which is 22 km (14 mi) wide at its narrowest point.

The vegetation index throughout the image is generally good (green) to high (rusty red), particularly on the North Island and eastern coast of the South Island, near the Banks Peninsula. A few areas of low photosynthetic activity (yellow) can be observed in the higher altitudes of the Southern Alps.
