One of the pre-eminent processes in theories of climate change is the ice-albedo feedback effect. The complexity of albedo parameterizations in energy balance climate models has increased with time. Earlier parameterizations have been replaced by empirical formulations heavily dependent on satellite data. Here, we question the interpretation of these satellite data.-from Authors
