Myanmar - November 5th, 2010

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). The index is highest (rusty red) near the coast on the left side of the image, around the border with northeast India.

The rest of the image shows good to high photosynthetic activity (green to rusty red), with a few areas of low activity (yellow), particularly to the north in the full image. Near the bottom, the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady) River can be seen releasing tan sediments into the Andaman Sea.
