Brazil - October 8th, 2010

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of a large section of the Amazon Rainforest, primarily in the Brazilian state of Amazonas. The vegetation index ranges from good (green) to high (rusty red), increasing as one moves from east to west.

Various rivers appear as yellow lines across the image. This yellow color represents a low vegetation index, as one would expect from a body of water. Click here to see a true-color version of the rivers and rainforest in this image.
