Vegetation Index of Eastern Brazil

February 16th, 2011 Category: Vegetation Index

Brazil - January 31st, 2011

This FAPAR image of eastern Brazil shows a mixed vegetation index, mostly ranging from good to high. Areas of good photosynthetic activity appear green, while areas of high activity appear rusty red.

The full image stretches from the northern coast to just south of São Paolo (bottom). A slightly lower vegetation index, yellow in color, can be observed by the northeastern shores.
