Caption: Map of Earth's surface reflection. Map showing the varying intensities of sunlight being reflected from Earth's surface. The intensity of the reflected sunlight is known as the albedo. This map shows the white sky albedo, which is the albedo under conditions of a uniform cloud cover. The most reflective regions are dark red. Areas with decreasing intensities are then coloured orange, yellow, green and blue, with violet being the lowest. White indicates that no data is available for those regions. Data obtained by the MODIS instrument on board NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites between 7th-22nd April 2002.
