Reflection properties of snow surfaces

Abstract

The cryosphere plays an important role for the energy budget on the Earth because of the high albedo and large seasonal variations. The surface albedo in the cryosphere varies drastically not only by phase change of snow and ice but also by change from new snow to melting snow. The melting of polar snow and ice due to global warming and the resultant sea level rise are currently causing much public anxiety (Bindoff et al., 2007).
