Australia - December 31st, 2011

This¬†FAPAR¬†image shows the vegetation index of parts of South Australia (upper left quadrant), New South Wales (upper right quadrant) and Tasmania (lower right quadrant) during the country’s summer season. The index is highest (green) by the southern coast and southeastern part of New South Wales and on the island of Tasmania. The terrain of South Australia and further inland in New South Wales shows a very low (light yellow) index.
