Vegetation Index of Nicaragua Near Coastline

12.3N 86.3W

December 10th, 2011 Category: Vegetation Index

Nicaragua - December 10th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of the southern coast of Central America. Visible near the shoreline from left to right are the Gulf of Fonseca, Lake Managua and Lake Nicaragua. The Gulf of Fonseca, part of the Pacific Ocean, borders El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. The two lakes are both located in Nicaragua.

The vegetation index is generally good (green) throughout the image. Some areas of high vegetation index (rusty red) can be seen in the upper right quadrant and near the coast, particularly on the narrow stretch of land between Lake Nicaragua and the Pacific Ocean.
