Sea Surface Temperature and Vegetation Index Animation
MODIS Instrument Team, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center,
This animation was produced using an 8-day composite of MODIS data acquired daily over the whole globe during the first week in April 2000. On land, the green to darker green pixels show where green foliage is being produced due to photosynthesis, while tan pixels show little or no productivity is occurring. In the ocean, the red pixels show warmer surface temperatures, while yellows and greens are intermediate values, and blue pixels show cold water.
