Vegetation Index Near Lakes Victoria and Tanganyika

1.9S 29.1E

January 30th, 2012 Category: Vegetation Index

DRC - January 3rd, 2012

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of the border area by Tanzania (right), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (left), Rwanda and Burundi (above center). Visible in the top right corner is part of Lake Victoria, with the small Lake Kivu visible above center, north of the longer Lake Tanganyika.

The index is highest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as can be seen by the rusty red false coloring. The rest of the image shows generally good photosynthetic activity (green), with a few small patches of low activity (yellow) visible just northwest of the northern end of Lake Tanganyika.
