Abstract

Abstract An analytical model of the contributions to the albedo by the radiative elements of a non-homogeneous plane, as observed with an airborne pyranometer, has been adapted for PC spreadsheet use. A number of examples, hypothetical and real, are explored and their enhanced visualisation with IDRISI (Geographical Information System) graphics is demonstrated.
