In cooperation with our Chilean partners reflection properties of snow covered surfaces typical for the Alps, the Andes or Antarctica will be investigated. Therefore a new multispectral spectroradiometer shall be developed to measure the spectral sky radiance from about 120 directions within a wavelength range of 280 nm – 600 nm simultaneously.
In 2015 a measurement campaign in a snow covered environment is planned to assess changes of the spectral albedo by temperature variations. In addition, snow models shall be assessed.
