Title Evaluation of Luojia 1-01 nighttime light imagery for impervious surface detection: A comparison with NPP-VIIRS nighttime light data Type Journal Article
Year 2019 Publication International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation Abbreviated Journal International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation
Volume 81 Issue (up) Pages 1-12
Keywords Remote Sensing
Abstract Impervious surface detection is significant to urban dynamic monitoring and environment management. One of the most effective approaches to evaluating the impervious surface is the use of nighttime light imagery. However, little work on this subject was carried out with the new generation nighttime light data from Luojia 1-01 satellite, which has a finer spatial resolution than the predecessors such as the nightlight data from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor on the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) Satellite. Therefore, this study conducted the first investigation of the capacity of Luojia 1-01 nighttime light data in detecting the extent and degree of impervious surfaces. Focusing on three cities of Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, several maps of the spatial extent of impervious surface areas were first extracted from two types of nighttime lights data (Luojia 1-01 and NPP-VIIRS data) by applying a dynamic threshold segmentation method. Meanwhile, a series of polynomial regression models were adopted to estimate the relation between imperiousness degree and light intensity. The results compared with the reference data derived from Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) show that Luojia 1-01 data can produce a more precise map of the spatial extent of impervious surfaces than NPP-VIIRS data owing to the finer spatial resolution and the wider measurement range. Nevertheless, Luojia 1-01 data failed to provide reliable estimates of the imperviousness degree in comparison with NPP-VIIRS data as this nighttime light imagery with finer spatial resolution can better discriminate the surfaces that have the same imperviousness degree but are illuminated with different light intensities, consequently resulting in a weak correlation between imperviousness degree and light intensity. The over- and under-estimates of imperviousness degree suggested an increase in spatial resolution of nightlight imagery does not always improve the accuracy and reliability of nighttime light-based estimations. These study results confirmed that Luojia 1-01 nightlight imagery is a potential and promising data source for mapping the spatial extent of impervious surface areas, but difficult to accurately estimate the imperviousness degree. Future research may improve the accuracy of imperviousness degree estimation by integrating the Luojia 1-01 nightlight imagery with other useful data sources.

Title Neither artificial light at night, anthropogenic noise nor distance from roads are associated with oxidative status of nestlings in an urban population of songbirds Type Journal Article
Year 2017 Publication Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. Part A, Molecular & Integrative Physiology Abbreviated Journal Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol
Volume 210 Issue (up) Pages 14-21
Keywords Animals
Abstract Increasing urbanization is responsible for road-related pollutants and causes an unprecedented increase in light and noise pollution, with potential detrimental effects for individual animals, communities and ecosystems. These stressors rarely act in isolation but studies dissecting the effects of these multiple stressors are lacking. Moreover, studies on urban stressors have mainly focused on adults, while exposure in early-life may be detrimental but is largely ignored. To fill this important knowledge gap, we studied if artificial light at night, anthropogenic noise and road-related pollution (using distance from roads as a proxy) explain variation in oxidative status in great tit nestlings (Parus major) in an urban population. Artificial light at night, anthropogenic noise and distance from roads were not associated with variation of the nine studied metrics of oxidative status (superoxide dismutase-SOD-, glutathione peroxidase-GPX, catalase-CAT-, non-enzymatic total antioxidant capacity-TAC-, reduced glutathione-GSH-, oxidized glutathione-GSSG-, ratio GSH/GSSG, protein carbonyls and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances-TBARS). Interestingly, for all oxidative status metrics, we found that there was more variation in oxidative status among individuals of the same nest compared to between different nests. We also showed an increase in protein carbonyls and a decrease of the ratio GSH/GSSG as the day advanced, and an increase of GPX when weather conditions deteriorated. Our study suggests that anthropogenic noise, artificial light at night and road-related pollution are not the most important sources of variation in oxidative status in great tit nestlings. It also highlights the importance of considering bleeding time and weather conditions in studies with free-living animals.
