Does albedo vary with time of the day..???

Recommended Posts

Hello all..!! I know that albedo is a ratio of the reflected energy from the surface to the amount of energy incident upon it. In the morning, both incident and reflected energy are low. In the afternoon, subsequently, the incident and reflected energies are higher but the ratio would seem to be similar. So, I feel albedo does not change with time of the day provided, there is no rain and the day is clear. Am I right with this thought..??!!
