I have come across some information stating that as energy from the sun passes through the atmosphere, 26% is reflected back into space by clouds and particles, then 19% is absorbed by clouds, gases and particles, 4% is reflected by the earth's surface back into space, and finally 51% is absorbed by the surface. I was wondering what sort of energy is being discussed here, is it all of the electromagnetic spectrum or just part? Which parts? What types of light are being talked about in each step?
Re: What kinds of light from the sun are involved in the greenhouse effect?
