Light Pollution Along the San Pedro River
With Dr. Eric Craine
The environmental impacts of artificial light at night are of increasing interest to scientists, environmentalists, and community planners. It is now understood that the very large scale, relatively recent conversion to brightly lit nights has measurable effects on both humans and wildlife. Birds are potentially sensitive barometers of the effects of light at night, and in this presentation we will look at their responses to artificial light, as well as new techniques for measuring light in the night time environment.
