Europe - August 1st, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of part of Europe, including Italy, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania and Greece.

The index is highest (rusty red) along the forest slopes of mountain ranges, such as the Apennines running down the spine of the Italian Peninsula. It is generally good (green) throughout the image, particularly in valleys and coastal areas, although some areas of low activity (yellow) can be observed in hot southern Italy, Sicily and Greece.
