Vegetation Index of Florida and the Everglades, USA27.6N 81.5W
The focus of this FAPAR image is the state of Florida, in the southeastern United States of America. Upon opening the full image, the states of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia are also visible, moving up the coast towards the North.
Most of the land visible appears bright green, indicating very good photosynthetic activity. Interestingly, the largest area of low photosynthetic activity, yellow in color, is situated near the tip of Florida, in the Everglades. Although this may seem counterintuitive, as the Everglades are a subtropical wetlands, this is probably due to the fact that the Everglades experience frequent drought in the dry season and flooding in the wet season.
