The darker the green color, the higher the FAPAR value.
Rasmussen, "Evaluation of MODIS LAI, fAPAR and the relation between fAPAR and NDVI in a semi-arid environment using in situ measurements," Remote Sensing of Environment, vol.
Plate 2.1ae displays the annual FAPAR anomalies at global scale for which brown (blue) color indicates negative (positive) values.
The 2015/16 meteorological conditions thus provided the basis for the highest area averaged IP fraction of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (FAPAR, a proxy for ecosystem productivity observed from space that is related to the state and greenness of vegetation canopies; Gobron et al.
Abbreviations indicate the following: combined drought indicator (CDI), comprehensive index (CI), evapotranspiration E, evaporative stress index (ESI), fraction of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (fAPAR), normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), precipitation P, runoff R (or streamflow), soil moisture S, standardized precipitation index (SPI), standardized soil moisture index (SSI), standardized runoff index (SRI), snow water equivalent (SWE), and soil moisture index (SMI).
Vermote photosynthetically active radiation (fAPAR) Normalized difference vegetation index E.
The state of vegetation is examined by merging 1998-2015 estimates of the Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FAPAR) from three different sensors: SeaWiFS (NASA), MERIS (ESA), and MODIS (NASA) (Gobron et al.

Water availability dominated the snow-free albedo and fraction of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (FAPAR) variability with strong signals in the drier-than-normal Eurasia and wetter-than-normal Southern Hemisphere.
