Indonesia - August 27th, 2010

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of multiple islands near the Molucca Sea belonging to Indonesia, as well as several islands of the Philippines (visible in the upper part of the full image).

In the thumbnail, the islands to the west show a higher index (rusty red) than those to the east, although all show at least a generally good index of photosynthetic activity (green). The islands of the Philippines also show a higher index than the majority of their Indonesian neighbors.
