March 10th, 2011 Category: Vegetation Index

Namibia - February 17th, 2011

The full version of this FAPAR image stretches from (bottom to top) northern Namibia, across Angola, to the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the Central African Republic.

The index is lowest in the Namib Desert, in Namibia (bottom left of full image) and in the Central African Republic (top section of full image). Most of the land inbetween shows a good index (green), with several large areas of high photosynthetic activity (rusty red).
