Zoomed excerpt of image taken by SPOT satellite on 17 November 2007. The angular shapes are used (dark coloured, showing the presence of water) and disused (bright coloured) shrimp ponds. The large light blue-coloured patch towards the bottom of the picture represents salt pans while on the opposite side of the pond, the light red patch shows a coconut plantation. Dark red patches close to the water around the bay and on the islands indicate the presence of mangrove vegetation. Satellite data © CNES 2007, Distribution Spot Image S.A., France, all rights reserved. Vegetation is shown in red, as the satellite acquires near-infrared wavelengths additional to colour wavelengths. Since healthy vegetation reflects a lot of near infrared, this information can be used to monitor vegetation health. Showing near infrared reflectance in red makes healthy vegetation appear red.Zoomed excerpt of image taken by SPOT satellite on 17 November 2007.
