Radiation Interaction

"Radiation that is not absorbed or scattered in the atmosphere can reach and interact with the Earth's surface. There are three [...] forms of interaction that can take place when energy strikes, or is incident  [...] upon the surface. These are: absorption  [...] , transmission  [...]  and reflection  [...]. The total incident energy will interact with the surface in one or more of these three ways. The proportions of each will depend on the wavelength of the energy and the material and condition of the feature." (Natural Resources Canada/Canada Centre for Remote Sensing, 2015)
