Italy - August 27th, 2010

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of the Italian Peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea, as well as the nearby islands of Sicily (below) and Sardinia (left, below), both belonging to Italy, and Corsica (left, above), part of France.

The Italian mainland shows a mostly good vegetation index (green), with some areas of high activity (brownish red) by the Apennine Range in the north. Sicily and the Apulia region, however, appear white and yellow, indicating a very low index. Corsica also appears to have a higher index than its neighbor, Sardinia.
