Nigeria - December 10th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of part of Africa, stretching along the coast of the Gulf of Guinea and Bight of Bonny from Nigeria, through Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and to Gabon (left to lower right).

The index is generally good (green) near the coast, and becomes lower (yellow) as one moves northwards towards the Sahara Desert. The index is highest (rusty red) in southwestern Nigeria, near the shores.
