This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index by the border of Kenya (above) and Tanzania (below), on the eastern coast of the African continent. Visible off the coast are the islands of Pemba (above) and Zanzibar (below).

Photosynthetic activity is generally good (green) throughout the image, particularly near the coast. Some areas of high activity (rusty red) can be observed near the coast and further inland. Areas of low activity (yellow) are visible inland but not along the coast.
