Re: Ask a Scientist

At first, I thought that I was asking a slightly silly question and there would be a simple answer. I am reassured that it is not a simple answer.

What really got be thinking about it was seeing the snow on the Alps in fierce sunlight and wondering why it wasn't disappearing so fast. I felt that I was melting in the heat and getting sunburnt, yet the snow seems to only thaw slowly.
