Description: Finnish Meteorological Institute, P.O. Box 503, 00101 Helsinki, Finland. Ground-based pyranometer measurements of broadband surface albedo values are affected by the atmospheric conditions. A new method for estimating the magnitude of this effect in clear sky conditions is presented. Global and reflected radiation values and AOD values at two wavelengths are needed to apply the method. Depending on the atmospheric optical depth and the sun zenith angle values the effect can be as large as 20%. For the test case of Cabauw the atmosphere caused typically 5% higher surface albedo values than the corresponding black-sky surface albedo values.
