Italy, Albania, Greece - January 4th, 2012

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of southern Italy (including Sicily, partially visible at the bottom of the left edge), as well as southwestern Albania and western Greece. More of the landscape of these countries can be observed in the full image.

The index of photosynthetic activity is generally good Italy, as per the generally green color. Some patches of high activity (rusty red) can be observed in Sicily and on the Gargano Peninsula (upper left corner). Areas of low activity (yellow) are present mostly in Albania and at higher elevations in Greece.
