Research reveals that the Earth’s brightness is declining

Research reveals that the Earth’s brightness is declining


The brightness of the Earth is gradually decreasing. In the last twenty years, the reflection of sunlight was less than 1 watt per square meter. As a result of global climate change and rising sea levels, the world is becoming increasingly pale.

Recently, environmental scientists published such information in the Journal of Geophysical Research. The moon gets illumination as the sun’s light is reflected on the Earth.

The study observed that sunlight returning from the Earth or the albedo of Earth significantly decreased in the last 20 years. The declining rate was highest in the last three years.

According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the brightness of the eastern Pacific Ocean has decreased more significantly. According to scientists, the Earth’s reflection has decreased by about 0.5 percent. At present, the Earth reflects only 30 percent of the total amount of heat from the sun’s rays.

According to researchers, the amount of rays from the sun depends on two factors—the brightness of the sun and the ability of the planet to reflect. Due to the reduction of earth albedo, concerns are growing.

Although the amount of heat from the sun has not changed, the amount of albedo has decreased. Scientists claim that this is happening due to the huge change in the world’s climate and the warming of the sea.
