Question

# Can I have all the answer so that I can check my answers?Thanks.

- 2 - b) Complete the albedo ( α ) column in Table 1 using 3 decimals for each answer and use the space be- low to show how you calculated it for 6:00 and 14:00. c) In one short sentence, comment about the variability of albedo throughout the day. d) In a short sentence, explain why L↑ is larger than L↓ for all values in Table 1 (hint: make an infer- ence about the temperature difference between the ground and the atmosphere). Question 2 - Energy balance . The table below represents some energy balance component es- timations at five different locations, at specific times of the day, in the surface of the ground. Table 2 .
