Honduras - December 11th, 2011

This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of part of Honduras and Nicaragua. Photosynthetic activity is very high throughout the image, as can be seen from the predominant rusty red false color.

Some areas of lower, but nonetheless good, photosynthetic activity can be observed near the Caribbean coast (top) and near the shores of Lake Nicaragua (bottom).
