Australia - April 4th, 2012

The vegetation index of the Cape York Peninsula, in the northern part of Queensland, Australia, appears mostly good (green) in this FAPAR image. The index becomes lower (yellow) as one moves further south. Visible to the north of the peninsula, however, is part of the island of New Guinea, which shows a much higher index of photosynthetic activity (rusty red).
