Thailand - January 2nd, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of Thailand and parts of other neighboring countries. Much of the central area of Thailand shows low photosynthetic activity (yellow).

Other areas however, show good (green) to high (rusty red) activity. These higher levels are mostly present in mountainous or hilly regions and along the Malay Peninsula (completely visible in the full image).
