This FAPAR image focuses on the long peninsula in Southeast Asia that divides the Gulf of Thailand (right) from the Andaman Sea (left). The northern half of the peninsula is shared by Myanmar (west) and Thailand (east), while the southern half is part of Malaysia. Parts of Cambodia (center) and Vietnam (far right) are also visible in the upper part of the image, and part of Indonesia can be seen in the full image, south of Malaysia.

Most of the peninsula and land in Indonesia appear red to dark green, indicating high photosynthetic activity. Parts of Cambodia and Vietnam, however, appear yellow, an indication of low activity.
