Record #173357:

Effect of clouds and free water on snow albedo / Punit Vashisth.

Title: Effect of clouds and free water on snow albedo / Punit Vashisth.
Author(s): Vashisth, Punit.
Date: 2005.
In: Bulletin of Glaciological Research. (2005.), Vol. 22 (2005)
Abstract: Reports study of spectral reflectance and integrated snow albedo, emphasizing effects of cloud amount and free water concentration on snow surface. Compares results of laboratory experiments performed by illuminating snow samples with artificial light source to estimate effect of free water concentration on reflectance characteristics of snow with field measurements at two Himalayan stations (Pir Panjal and West Himalaya) and one Antarctic ice shelf station. Cloud cover increases integrated albedo by reducing infrared radiation reaching snow surface and by diffusing incident radiation. Develops empirical relationship to estimate variation in snow albedo with cloud amount. Increasing free surface water decreases albedo.
