  • Spectral albedo and conversion to broadband albedo

    • [Nolin & Dozier, Remote Sens. Environ., 2000]

  • Fractional (subpixel) snow-covered area, along with albedo

    • [Painter et al., Remote Sens. Environ., 2003]

  • Liquid water in surface layer

    • [Green et al., Water Resour. Res., 2006]

  • Absorbing impurities

    • [Painter et al., Appl. Environ. Microbiol., 2001; Geophys. Res. Lett., 2007]
