What is meant by the term albedo? How does albedo affect the behavior of solar radiation reaching Earth’s surface? 2. Why would you expect Greenland to have a higher albedo than its surrounding areas? 3. What role would seasonality have on Earth’s albedo and how does the Earth’s albedo change over the course of a year? 4. How do soot particles in the atmosphere affect incoming solar radiation? How might an increase or decrease in the number of particles change the intensity of solar radiation reaching Earth’s surface?
