Mexico - July 12th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index by the border between Mexico and Texas along the Gulf of Mexico.

The index is generally good (green) near the coastline, and becomes lower (yellow) as one moves further inland. Some areas of high photosynthetic activity (rusty red) are visible in the lower part of the image.
