Vegetation Index of Land Around Barotse Floodplain and Okavango Delta, Central Southern Africa

20.6S 25.6E

March 14th, 2011 Category: Vegetation Index

Angola, Zambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe - February 18th, 2011

The full version of this FAPAR image stretches across parts of Angola (upper left), Zambia (upper right), Botswana (lower left) and Zimbabwe (lower right). The land shows a generally good vegetation index, indicated by the mostly green false-color of the image.

However, several areas of high activity (rusty red) and low photosynthetic activity (yellow) can be seen across the image as well. The less active areas can be noted southeast of the Okavango Delta (bottom center of thumbnail) as one moves towards the Makgadikgadi Pans, and to the west of the Barotse Floodplain (above center).
