Total shortwave and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) albedos of eight boreal forest stands of different species (pine, spruce and birch) and structure were measured, and the results were compared to albedos simulated with an existing forest albedo model. The measured shortwave and PAR albedos were rather insensitive to leaf area index (LAI), the largest differences in albedo occurring between tree species. A thinning operation in one of the pine stands caused a short term increase in… CONTINUE READING
