RESEARCH BEHIND
REFLECTIVITY.

RESEARCH

Humans have influenced Earth's reflectivity since the rise of agriculture when people cleared forests to make space for crops. While those changes were inadvertent, today scientists and policymakers are studying intentional interventions to brighten the surface and atmosphere. We are an active collaborator in this international effort to better understand the effectiveness and impacts of managing Earth's reflectivity. Together, we can learn and inform climate action.

Albedo & Global Warming

Albedo is the technical term for how reflective the Earth is.

Reflectivity of Man-Made Surfaces, Community Effects

Some amazing work is being done to make the Earth's surface more reflective and keep it more reflective.

Atmospheric Reflectivity

Can we effectively reflect some solar energy before it gets to the Earth's surface?

Policy and Advocacy

There are important issues to debate about how to modify Earth’s reflectivity, from the local to the global, and from the surface out to space.
