Mexico - November 13th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of the Yucatán Peninsula, in Mexico and Belize, the northern part of Honduras, and the central and western parts of Cuba.

The vegetation index throughout most of the Yucatán Peninsula is very high (rusty red), with some areas of lower yet still good (green) activity along its northern coastline and by Belize. Honduras and Cuba show mixed but predominately good levels of photosynthetic activity.
