Arctic Albedo Variations

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Anthony has just posted the results from a “Press Session” at the AGU conference. In it the authors make two claims of interest. The first is that there has been a five percent decrease in the summer Arctic albedo since the year 2000: A decline in the region’s albedo –…

From #AGU14 – satellites detect albedo change in the Arctic, resulting in more absorbed solar radiation

This press session at AGU conference today had quite a lot to say. Personally, I think the issue of carbon soot forcing is one of the strongest drivers of this, as WUWT previously covered here: In the Arctic, nearby soot may be a larger forcing than CO2 NASA Satellites Measure Increase of Sun’s Energy Absorbed…
