Vegetation Index of Northern Europe at End of Winter

Northern Europe - March 19th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of part of Europe, including Denmark (center), Norway and Sweden (left to right, above), and parts of England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany (left to right, below).

The vegetation index across most of the image is quite low (yellow), although this is to be expected since the image is from the last days of the northern hemisphere winter. Some good levels of photosynthetic activity (green), however, can be seen along the coast in the lower left quadrant.
