February 25th, 2012 Category: Vegetation Index

Australia - January 2nd, 2012

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of southeastern Australia, in the states of Victoria (below) and New South Wales (above), as well as the island and state of Tasmania, located 240 kilometres (150 mi) south of the continent, separated by the Bass Strait.

The vegetation index is generally good along the coastline, as can be observed from the green false-coloring. A few patches of high activity (rusty red) are also visible. Further inland, the index becomes significantly lower, as can be observed from the light yellow color.
