Abstract

A series of paving bricks painted in 20 per cent reflectivity intervals from black through to white were used to monitor albedo-influenced temperatures at a site in northern Canada in an attempt to test this premise. Temperatures were collected, for 5 months, for the rock surface and the base of the rock, the blocks being set within a mass of local sediment. The results of the controlled experiment are presented and discussed
