Angola - April 28th, 2010

This FAPAR image shows southeastern Angola, a country located on the western Atlantic Coast of southern Africa between Namibia and the Republic of the Congo. It also is bordered by the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zambia to the east.

The country consists of a sparsely watered and somewhat sterile coastal plain extending inland for a distance varying from 30 to 100 miles (48 to 160 km). Slightly inland and parallel to the coast is a belt of hills and mountains and behind those a large plateau.

The land visible here shows a mostly good vegetation index, as indicated by the green color. Yellow areas indicate lower photosynthetic activity, while the black areas show the presence of water.
