It is known to albedo of the earth as the relationship between the luminous flux emitted by the surface of our planet and that which comes from the sun. This fraction of light varies with latitude and with the nature of the soil.

Water reflects 10% of sunlight, vegetation 15% to 20%, sea ice 50% to 60%, recent snow 80% to 90%. This ratio is maximum in Antarctica.
