Definition:
The reflectance properties of ice bodies. A smooth ice surface will act as
a near-specular reflector. As surface roughness increases, the reflection
becomes diffuse. It is the ratio of the intensity of reflected radiation
to that of the incident radiation on a surface. The suffix (-ance) implies
a property of that particular specimen surface.
