Research Brief: Quantifying the impact of pavement reflectivity on radiative forcing and building energy demand in neighborhoods (2017-03-13)Albedo is the measure of the fraction of solar energy reflected by the Earth’s surface. High-albedo surfaces, which are lighter in color, absorb less sunlight energy and reflect more shortwave radiation. The change in ...
