Australia - December 30th, 2010

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of eastern Australia, including (from bottom to top) Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland (in full image).

The index is highest (green) along the coastline, and becomes progressively lower (yellow to white) as one moves further inland towards the country’s arid interior.
