And there was... still more than half of the increase would have occurred... had there not been any clouds over the United States. At the same time, or shortly before, there was a paper published that showed that the very same sites we used in our analysis, showed that there was a lessening of the aerosol loading at the same time.
This gives us a tool we can use here... that I'll talk more about later on... but if you can... you can look at the sky-light or the diffuse field, and look spectrally... look at a red… just a narrow band of red light, and a narrow band of blue light and take a ratio of that. Then the ratio for blue sky will be small... red over blue... because the red is a smaller amount, but for the white... as it gets whiter that it will approach one... and that's what we look.
