there's a vangelis album and song titled "albedo 0.39". that's all i know of albedo. it think it's cover is a good reflection of albedo. at least better than that weird mashed potato shot in the middle of this post!

For more M-W enjoyment, go to, search for "son of a bitch", and listen to the SECOND pronunciation.
