Vegetation Index of Portugal and Galicia, Spain42.6N 8W
This FAPAR thumbnail image focuses on Galicia, in northwestern Spain, and northern Portugal (the latter can be seen in its entirety in the full image).
Galicia has preserved some of its dense Atlantic forests where wildlife is commonly found. Deforestation, however, is a problem in many areas.
In this image, coastal Spain shows a good (green) to high (rusty red) index of photosynthetic activity. The index of coastal Portugal is also generally good. The index becomes lower (yellow) as one moves inland, however.
