Vegetation Index Around Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Mexico18.0N 94.6W
This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index around the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, in Mexico. Part of the Yucatán Peninsula can also be observed to the right.
The index is generally good (green) throughout the image, particularly along the coasts. The highest levels of photosynthetic activity (rusty red) can be observed along the mountain ranges running parallel to the coast, and near the isthmus’ southern coastline. The lowest (yellow) are visible inland to the west, between the ranges.
