The Earth’s albedo determines the amount of solar radiation reflected by the Earth’s surface, it is about 30%.  Students carry out a laboratory exercise to measure the Earth’s albedo using a light probe and coloured paper to resemble different surfaces.  They calculate the percentage of light reflected and consider why this is important when constructing models for climate change.
