Title DATA MINING OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS WITH USING NIGHTLIGHT INDICATORS Type Journal Article
Year 2019 Publication TECHNOLOGY AUDIT AND PRODUCTION RESERVES Abbreviated Journal
Volume 3/2 Issue 47 Pages
Keywords Remote Sensing
Abstract (down) Об’єктом дослідження є процес сталого розвитку територіальних одиниць на прикладі регіонів України. Концепція сталого розвитку стала провідною стратегією розвитку для більшості країн світу. Однією із найбільших проблем залишається отримання повних та верифікованих даних для моделей оцінювання розвитку. В роботі було використано методику розрахунку індексу сталого розвитку, яка розроблена в Світовому центрі даних з геоінформатики та сталого розвитку Національного технічного університету України «Київський політехнічний інститут ім. Ігоря Сікорського». Дана методика ґрунтується на розрахунку метрики індексу сталого розвитку на основі вимірів якості життя населення та безпекової компоненти проживання для окремих країн та регіонів. Для застосування методики на регіональному рівні було запропоновано використання інформації про нічне освітлення території, яка отримується засобами дистанційного зондування Землі із супутникових систем. Досліджено характер та тісноту зв’язку між яскравістю нічного освітлення та індикаторами сталого розвитку. З’ясовано, що найбільш значущий зв’язок наявний між показниками індексу економічного розвитку, індексом впливу на зміну клімату та нічним освітленням території регіонів України. На основі геоінформаційного аналізу програмного забезпечення ArcGIS компанії ESRI було застосовано інструментарій статистичного зонування, який надає можливості для статистичної обробки даних супутникових знімків у межах виокремлених за адміністративним принципом регіонів або інших полігональних областей. На основі математичного апарату інтелектуального аналізу даних було здійснено глобальний та локальний регресійний аналіз зв’язку між виявленими показниками. Розгляд тісноти цього зв’язку в територіальному розрізі дозволив виявити зони з найбільшою та низькою тіснотою впливу, що пояснюється особливостями соціально-економічного розвитку даних територій. Завдяки цьому забезпечується можливість отримання розрахунку аналогічних показників на більш детальних територіальних рівнях, які відповідають окремим районам або містам обласного значення

Title Detecting Zimbabwe's Decadal Economic Decline Using Nighttime Light Imagery Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication Remote Sensing Abbreviated Journal Remote Sensing
Volume 5 Issue 9 Pages 4551-4570
Keywords Zimbabwe; economic decline; nighttime light; DMSP-OLS; remote sensing; light at night
Abstract (down) Zimbabwe’s economy declined between 2000 and 2009. This study detects the economic decline in different regions of Zimbabwe using nighttime light imagery from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program’s Operational Linescan System (DMSP-OLS). We found a good correlation (coefficient = 0.7361) between Zimbabwe’s total nighttime light (TNL) and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the period 1992 to 2009. Therefore, TNL was used as an indicator of regional economic conditions in Zimbabwe. Nighttime light imagery from 2000 and 2008 was compared at both national and regional scales for four types of regions. At the national scale, we found that nighttime light in more than half of the lit area decreased between 2000 and 2008. Moreover, within the four region types (inland mining towns, inland agricultural towns, border towns and cities) we determined that the mining and agricultural sectors experienced the most severe economic decline. Some of these findings were validated by economic survey data, proving that the nighttime light data is a potential data source for detecting the economic decline in Zimbabwe.

Title Stomatal movements depend on interactions between external night light cue and internal signals activated by rhythmic starch turnover and abscisic acid (ABA) levels at dawn and dusk Type Journal Article
Year 2017 Publication Acta Physiologiae Plantarum Abbreviated Journal Acta Physiol Plant
Volume 39 Issue 8 Pages
Keywords Plants
Abstract (down) Yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) is a widespread hardwood tree of great ecological and economic value. Light pollution caused by excessive and indiscriminate exposure to artificial night light has emerged as a new risk factor due to its adverse effects related to energy waste, sleep disorders, anthropogenic habitat disturbance, and perceptual disorder of daily and seasonal rhythms in wildlife. However, it remains unknown how associations between artificial night light and stomatal behaviors controlled by internal signals are established. After continuous exposure to artificial light at night over 3 years, leaves in the experimental set-up were measured for stomatal movements, starch turnover, endogenous abscisic acid (ABA) levels, and chloroplast ultrastructure during the growing season. Yellow poplar showed dynamic changes in stomatal movement, starch turnover, and endogenous ABA levels in response to day/artificial night light cycle, resulting in reduction of circadian phase-shifting capacity at both dusk and dawn and normal chloroplast development as compared with natural night. Nighttime light exposure may act as a major factor for disorder of circadian and circannual rhythms as well as physiological and ultrastructural repressor in plants, via a modification of the perceived photoperiod. Our study suggests that these dynamic responses can provide advantageous insights that complement the current knowledge on light pollution.

Title Astronomical Observing Conditions at Xinglong Observatory from 2007 to 2014 Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
Volume 127 Issue 958 Pages 1292-1306
Keywords Skyglow; light pollution; observatories; China; Xinglong; Sky Quality Meter; SQM
Abstract (down) Xinglong Observatory of the National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), is one of the major optical observatories in China, which hosts nine optical telescopes including the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) and the 2.16 m reflector. Scientific research from these telescopes is focused on stars, galaxies, and exoplanets using multicolor photometry and spectroscopic observations. Therefore, it is important to provide the observing conditions of the site, in detail, to the astronomers for an efficient use of these facilities. In this article, we present the characterization of observing conditions at Xinglong Observatory based on the monitoring of meteorology, seeing and sky brightness during the period from 2007 to 2014. Meteorological data were collected from a commercial Automatic Weather Station (AWS), calibrated by China Meteorological Administration. Mean and median wind speed are almost constant during the period analyzed and ranged from 1.0 to 3.5 m s-1. However, high wind speed (≥15 m s-1) interrupts observations, mainly, during the winter and spring. Statistical analysis of air temperature showed the temperature difference between daytime and nighttime, which can be solved by opening the ventilation device and the slit of the dome at least 1 hr before observations. Analysis resulted in average percentage of photometric nights and spectroscopic nights are 32% and 63% per year, respectively. The distribution of photometric nights and spectroscopic nights has a significant seasonal tendency, worse in summer due to clouds, dust, and high humidity. Seeing measurements were obtained using the Differential Image Motion Monitor (DIMM). Mean and median values of seeing over 1 year are around 1.9″ and 1.7″, respectively. Eighty percent of nights with seeing values are below 2.6″, whereas the distribution peaks around 1.8″. The measurements of sky brightness are acquired from the Sky Quality Meter (SQM) and photometric observations. Analysis shows that sky brightness at the zenith is around 21.1 mag arcsec-2 and becomes brighter with a larger zenith angle. Sky brightness increases due to the light pollution of the surrounding cities, Beijing, Tangshan, and Chengde. Significant influence toward the direction of Beijing, at an altitude of 30°, can increase the sky brightness up to 20.0 mag arcsec-2. Sky brightness reduces after midnight, mainly because of the influence of city lights and the artificial acts. The above results suggest that Xinglong Observatory is still a good site for astronomical observations. Our analysis of the observing conditions at Xinglong Observatory can be used as a reference to the observers on targets selection, observing strategy, and telescope operation.
