Investigation into albedo-controlled energy loss during the last glaciation
published at : Tibet and High-Asia
In this essay, the influence of albedo on the radiation balance is investigated. If an interaction between the form of the earth's surface and the radiation budget exists, this should be quantifiable by estimating the albedo value. Reconstructions of the last great Pleistocene glaciation 18,000 years ago show that the form of the earth's surface at that time was considerably different to its present form. The results show a difference between the earth's radiation budget 18,000 years ago and that of today
