Effects of Clouds on Surface Temperature and Albedo
The effects of clouds on the surface temperature and albedo of sea ice are being
investigated. Apart from the obvious goal of learning more about the
cloud-radiative feedback in the polar regions, we are also interested in
developing algorithms for the estimating the cloudy sky temperature and
albedo from satellite. Progress has been made using SHEBA data, and preliminary algorithms have
been developed. Click on a link below for more information.
