Reflection (Atmospheric)

Process where insolation is redirect by 180° after striking a particle. This redirection causes 100% loss. Most of the reflection in the Earth’s atmosphere occurs in clouds because of light’s interception with particles of liquid and frozen water. The reflectivity of a cloud can range from 40-90%.
