[O02-P15] Quantification of Light Pollution
Keywords:sky-glow, rate of sky-glow variation by time, light pollution, quantification
Light pollution is that artificial lights exert bad effects upon environment. From the research by our seniors, we realized sky-glow is had major effects by the weather conditions and the environmental index.
J.Bortle and S.Albers researched for quantifying the dark night sky in 2001, but the "LPI-S" we defined is quantification of the night sky brightened by artificial lights.
We want to enlighten light pollution using LPI-S not only in Japan but also all over the world, we hope to reduce wasteful energy.
