  Title Night light alters menstrual cycles Type Journal Article
  Year (up) 1990 Publication Psychiatry Research Abbreviated Journal Psychiatry Research  
  Volume 33 Issue 2 Pages 135-138  
  Keywords Human Health; Light; menstruation; phototherapy  
  Abstract Dewan asserted 20 years ago that a bedside light could shorten and regularize the menstrual cycle among women with long and irregular menstrual patterns. To replicate this, seven volunteers slept with a 100-watt bulb by the bedside from days 13–17 of their menstrual cycles, while nine controls similarly used a dim red placebo (photographic safe light). Indeed, the 100-watt bulbs shortened menstrual cycles from a mean of 45.7 days to 33.1 days and reduced variability, but the placebo had no effect. These results suggest that light may have promise for treatment of infertility, for contraception, and for other endocrine interventions.

  Title Sensitivity of Goats to a Light Pulse During the Night as Assessed by Suppression of Melatonin Concentrations in the Plasma Type Journal Article
  Year (up) 1990 Publication Journal of Pineal Research Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 8 Issue 2 Pages 169-177  
  Keywords animals; goat; Circadian Rhythm; Light intensity  
  Abstract This study investigates the ability of a 1 h light pulse of different intensities at night to suppress plasma melatonin in goats. Six female Saanen dairy goats, about 2 yr old, were housed in a light-tight shed. The goats were habituated for 1 wk to an 8L: 16D photoperiod (40.70 ± 4.16 &#956;W/cm2; 137 ± 14 lux), lights on 0800 h. A 1 h light pulse, of different intensity on each occasion, was given from 1900 to 2000 h. Light intensity was measured by using a lux meter (mean of 36 measurements at goat's eye level). Five different light intensities were given during December in the order 4.22 ± 0.62 &#956;W/cm2 (14.2 ± 2.1 lux), 0.68 ± 0.09 &#956;W/cm2 (2.3 ± 0.3 lux), 0.26 ± 0.004 &#956;W/cm2 (O.87 ± 0.14 lux), darkness, 40.70 ± 4.16 &#956;W/cm2 (137 ± 14 lux), with 1–3 d between treatments. The goats were bled hourly from 1500 to 1900 h and every 15 min from 1900 to 2100 h, and a last bleed occurred at 2200 h. Dark-phase samples were taken in dim red light (<0.03 &#956;W/cm2; 0.1 lux). Plasma was assayed for melatonin by radioimmunoassay. Suppression of melatonin concentrations increased as light intensity increased as follows: Darkness, 0%; 0.26 ± 0.004 &#956;W/cm2; 0%; 0.68 ± 0.09 &#956;W/cm2; 43.1%; 4.22 ± 0.62 &#956;W/cm2, 71.1%; 40.70 ± 4.16 &#956;W/cm2, 81.2%. Suppression was significant (P<0.05) at light intensities >0.68 &#956;W/cm2, 2.3 lux. A hyperbolic relationship existed between percent suppression and light intensities.

  Title Sky glow and outdoor lighting trends since 1976 at the Lowell Observatory Type Journal Article
  Year (up) 1990 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal PASP  
  Volume 102 Issue Pages 481  
  Keywords Skyglow; Lighting  
  Abstract Urban sky-glow (light pollution) trends, recorded photoelectrically in intermediate-band b (472 nm) and y (551 nm) filters at the original site of the Lowell Observatory on Mars Hill near downtown Flagstaff, Arizona, reflect not just the population growth of the surrounding city but also some ameliorating effects of lighting controls and a changing mix of outdoor lighting sources. Since 1976 the sky brightness increased in b but has been virtually constant in y. New ordinances limit lighting growth near observatories and require monochromatic low-pressure sodium luminaires for most applications.
