Vegetation Index of Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales, Australia37.8S 144.9E
This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania, Australia. Most of Tasmania appears green, indicating good levels of photosynthetic activity, as do most of the coastal areas on the Australian mainland.
Some areas in New South Wales, principally in national parks and forest reserves, appear dark red, indicating high photosynthetic activity. As one moves inland towards Australia’s more arid interior, the color changes to yellow and white, reflecting the low activity of those zones.
