India - February 18th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of parts of India and Sri Lanka. Although the thumbnail image focuses on the latter and the southern tip of the former, the full image stretches northward to the Himalayas.

Sri Lanka shows a generally good vegetation index (green). Much of India alternates between good photosynthetic activity and low activity (yellow), although some areas near the southwest coast and just south of the Himalayas show a high index (rusty red).
