Earthshine Project

Earthshine Project

This site, created by Phil Goode of New Jersey's Science and Technology University, investigates new ways to measure the earth's albedo (reflected sunlight). The incoming sunlight and the albedo have a significant impact on the earth's climate. The page features different images of observatories around the globe along with statistical data and charts to illustrate their findings. An extensive bibliography is provided for those interested in further study on these findings.
