  • 11. These are scanning electron microscope images illustrating (left) a freshly fallen snowflake and (right) a snowflake that has warmed. The sharper-edged snowflakes have the ability to reflect more sunlight and have a higher albedo than the rounded snow particles.

  • 12. August 2005 photograph of a portion of the Greenland ice sheet (approximate elevation 1500 feet) included to illustrate how dark the ice sheet becomes when (a) not covered with snow (common in the summer at lower elevations, but becoming more common at high elevations); (b) impurities cover the surface of the glacier.
