This paper describes how the blue-sky albedo of soil varies during the whole year from midday to sunset under clear-sky conditions. A hemispherical-directional reflectance model was used to calculate albedo variations associated with smooth, moderate and rough soil surfaces, located between the latitude angles of 75° in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. We calculate the time when the albedo, acquired by an instantaneous observation, best represents its daily averaged value. This optimal time range is assessed in the context of remote-sensing satellite technology.
