Abstract: FAPAR (Absorbed Active Photosynthetic Radiation Fraction) anomalies exhibit significant regional differences in vegetation conditions worldwide in 2018. Large geographical regions with most negative anomaly (not favourable for plants photosynthetic activities) are observed in both eastern regions of Australia and Brazil. A number of comparatively weaker local negative anomalies are present over the globe, such as in southern Madagascar, central Argentina, central France, south of central Asia and India. The main positive anomaly is found in eastern China, as the case in 2017, and in Turkey as well. To a lesser extent, Mexico, the US Upper Midwest and southern Paraguay also have positive deviations.
