New Zealand - January 3rd, 2012

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of New Zealand’s North and South Islands. The index of photosynthetic activity is mostly mixed between good (green) and high (rusty red) on both islands, although there is a larger area of an exclusively high index on the North Island. Levels of activity are lowest by the Southern Alps, the mountainous backbone of the South Island.
