Panama and Costa Rica - February 17th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of Costa Rica (left) and Panama (right). In most areas in both countries, levels of photosynthetic activity are either good (green) or high (rusty red), although a few areas of lower levels (yellow) can be observed in the full image.

Also visible in the full image, to the right, is part of northern Colombia. It shows a generally good index, although photosynthetic activity is less strong than in its neighbors to the west.
