Abstract

Two sky luminance distributions are given for overcast sky above snow-covered terrain, and directional luminous reflectance data are presented which were obtained under these skies. Luminous reflectances computed from Krinov spectral reflectance data for a variety of natural terrains measured under overcast are also included.
