Climate change affects moonlight

belbalady.net London – Arabic Today

Is there a connection between climate change and moonlight? This may seem impossible, but an American study shows that what we do on Earth, and climate change, affects what we receive from the moon’s light, which leads to a decrease in the Earth’s brightness. New researchers at the Jersey Institute of Technology have used decades of measurements of the Earth’s brightness. It takes decades for sunlight to reflect off the Earth’s surface, and satellite measurements to see if there’s been a significant decrease in this light over the past two years.
The Earth now “reflects less than half a watt of light per square meter than it did 20 years ago,” according to a study released yesterday in a letter from Geophysics Research. In the name of “white”.
“The decline in albedo was surprising to us, as we analyzed data for the past three years after 17 years of geospatial data from 17-2017, collected by the Big Bear Solar Laboratory in Southern California.
There are two things that affect the pure sunlight reaching the earth, which are the brightness of the sun and the light reflected from the earth to the moon, and the changes observed by the researchers are not related to the occasional changes in the brightness of the sun, which means that the changes in the light reflected from the earth to the moon are caused by something on the ground.
“In particular, the bright and reflective low clouds in the eastern Pacific Ocean have decreased in recent years, according to satellite measurements made as part of the NASA Clouds Project and the Earth’s Radio Energy System (CERES). An increase in sea surface temperature has been recorded due to climate change, associated with global climate change.
