February 18th, 2012 Category: Vegetation Index

Indonesia - January 4th, 2012

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of Kalimantan (the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo, above), Belintung (also part of Indonesia, near the left edge), and Java (another island of Indonesia, below). The index range from good (green) to high (rusty red) on all three islands, with very few areas of low (yellow) activity.

Belintung is a medium sized island of about 3,000 square miles (7,800 km2), it consists of moderately rugged terrain with several hills. Java is almost entirely of volcanic origin; it contains thirty-eight mountains forming an east-west spine. More mountains and highlands help to split the interior into a series of relatively isolated regions suitable for wet-rice cultivation.
