January 19th, 2012 Category: Vegetation Index

New Zealand - December 30th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of the southern half of New Zealand’s South Island. The index is highest (rusty red) in the coastal plains by the southern shores, and lowest (yellow) amidst the ridges of the Southern Alps.

Many fjords can be observed along the southwestern coast, as can several glacial lakes in the mountains towards the center of the island (Southern Alps). A faint phytoplankton bloom can be observed off the east coast.
