Cuba and Bahamas - February 17th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of Cuba (below) and the islands of the Bahamas (above). A small section of the coast of Florida, USA, can also be seen west of the Bahamas (along the left edge of the image).

Most of the land visible here shows a good vegetation index, indicated by the green color. Some areas in western Cuba show a high index (rusty red), while other areas in eastern Cuba and western Andros Island (the largest island in the Bahamas) show a low index (yellow).
