Title Dark skies in the UK Type Journal Article
Year 2012 Publication Astronomy & Geophysics Abbreviated Journal
Volume (down) 53 Issue 3 Pages 3.25-3.25
Keywords Editorial
Abstract The United Kingdom is a highly and densely populated country (∼62 million people) with a high level of light pollution. It is not easy to find places in the UK where you can still see the Milky Way — indeed the best that is often on offer is the main defining stars of the major constellations, the brighter planets and the Moon. Even the Moon is hardly noticeable from central London. But there are still dark places in the UK. The best area to find them is in the remote northwest of Scotland — but this region is not noted for its fine weather and neither is it easy to get to. However, there are places closer to centres of population that offer satisfactorily dark skies where the Milky Way and a few nebulosities are visible with the naked eye. Sites of this sort of quality are still to be found in the National Parks with excellent access to major centres of population.

Title Measuring and using light in the melanopsin age Type Journal Article
Year 2014 Publication Trends in Neurosciences Abbreviated Journal Trends Neurosci
Volume (down) 37 Issue 1 Pages 1-9
Keywords Editorial; Animals; Circadian Rhythm/physiology; Humans; Photoreceptor Cells/metabolism; Phototherapy/*trends; Retinal Ganglion Cells/metabolism; Rod Opsins/*physiology
Abstract Light is a potent stimulus for regulating circadian, hormonal, and behavioral systems. In addition, light therapy is effective for certain affective disorders, sleep problems, and circadian rhythm disruption. These biological and behavioral effects of light are influenced by a distinct photoreceptor in the eye, melanopsin-containing intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs), in addition to conventional rods and cones. We summarize the neurophysiology of this newly described sensory pathway and consider implications for the measurement, production, and application of light. A new light-measurement strategy taking account of the complex photoreceptive inputs to these non-visual responses is proposed for use by researchers, and simple suggestions for artificial/architectural lighting are provided for regulatory authorities, lighting manufacturers, designers, and engineers.
