  Title City Sky Glow Monitoring at Kitt Peak. Type Journal Article
  Year 1973 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 85 Issue 507 Pages 503-507  
  Keywords Skyglow  
  Abstract Photographs of night sky have been taken from Kitt Peak on clear moonless nights to provide a record of changes in contamination from artificial lights. Quantitative measures confirm the obvious qualitative impression that city sky-glow brightness is increasing as is the case at most existing observatory sites.

  Title Light Pollution in California and Arizona. Type Journal Article
  Year 1973 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 85 Issue 507 Pages 508-519  
  Keywords Skyglow  
  Abstract The present and future effect of artificial illumination on ground-based optical astronomical observations in California and Arizona is discussed. It is concluded that the effectiveness of all major observatories in these states is presently or potentially limited by light pollution. Consequently, it is essential that immediate efforts be undertaken to: (1) Control outdoor illumination to lengthen the useful life of existing observatory sites, and (2) Identify and protect the best remaining sites both within and outside the United States. The characteristics and probable locations of the best sites for ground-based optical astronomical observations are discussed.

  Title 'When the lights stay on' – A novel approach to assessing human impact on the environment. Earth. Type Journal Article
  Year 2008 Publication Earthzine Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Ecology  
  Abstract A consequence of the explosive expansion of human civilization has been the global loss of biodiversity and changes to life-sustaining geophysical processes of Earth. The footprint of human occupation is uniquely visible from space in the form of artificial night lighting – ranging from the burning of the rainforest to massive offshore fisheries to omnipresent lights of cities, towns, and villages. This article describes a novel approach to assessing global human impact using satellite observed nighttime lights. The results provide reef managers and governments a first-pass screening tool for reef conservation projects. Sites requiring restoration and precautionary actions can be identified and assessed further in more focused investigations. We hope to create a mental picture for others to see and encourage participation in maintaining and restoring the natural world.
