Abstract : The article examines albedo of snow and ice with respect to stationary observations on Cape Sterlegov, and also generalizes the results of investigations of the reflecting power of snow-ice layer from aboard an aircraft. Knowledge of these questions is necessary when solving a number of problems in the areas of meteorology, ice flow, and ice forecast. (Author)
