The progress of snow albedo for the 1991 winter from Helligdagshaugen research site, Norway, is presented. The temporal reduction of albedo decreases as the snow undergoes a process of metamorphosis, as long as the snow depth is large enough to prevent absorption of solar radiation by the underlying terrain. Later, as the snow depth becomes less than about 10 cm and the area of bare patches grows, there is an increase in the temporal rate of reduction in albedo. An accumulated daily maximum… CONTINUE READING
