Forest Journal: More albedo can be a pretty cool thing

Forest Journal: More albedo can be a pretty cool thing

"I remember putting a dime and a penny on the dashboard of the car in the sun. My mom would reach for the dime, and I'd tell her to wait, that I was conducting an experiment. The copper penny would get warmer faster than the shiny dime."  And thus Liz Burakowski dates her fascination with the "albedo" back to when she was 5 or 6 years old.

    Climate modeler Muge Komurcu probes the missing link in global climate models

    When Muge Komurcu looks skyward at passing clouds, she admires their beauty and mercurial nature like any good cloud watcher. But she notes, "When I see a cloud, I think about the small ice particles and cloud droplets inside."  The focus of Komurcu's scientific research is understanding how clouds work or, more specifically, modeling how they influence climate by either absorbing or reflecting sunlight—in large part a function of whether they are made up mostly of water or ice.
