Title Relationships between sleep, physical activity and human health Type Journal Article
Year 2007 Publication Physiology & Behavior Abbreviated Journal Physiol Behav
Volume 90 Issue 2-3 Pages 229-235
Keywords Human Health; Activity Cycles/*physiology; Animals; Body Temperature/physiology; Exercise/*physiology; Health; Humans; Motor Activity/physiology; Pineal Gland/physiology; Sleep/*physiology; Wakefulness/physiology
Abstract Although sleep and exercise may seem to be mediated by completely different physiological mechanisms, there is growing evidence for clinically important relationships between these two behaviors. It is known that passive body heating facilitates the nocturnal sleep of healthy elderly people with insomnia. This finding supports the hypothesis that changes in body temperature trigger somnogenic brain areas to initiate sleep. Nevertheless, little is known about how the core and distal thermoregulatory responses to exercise fit into this hypothesis. Such knowledge could also help in reducing sleep problems associated with nocturnal shiftwork. It is difficult to incorporate physical activity into a shiftworker's lifestyle, since it is already disrupted in terms of family commitments and eating habits. A multi-research strategy is needed to identify what the optimal amounts and timing of physical activity are for reducing shiftwork-related sleep problems. The relationships between sleep, exercise and diet are also important, given the recently reported associations between short sleep length and obesity. The cardiovascular safety of exercise timing should also be considered, since recent data suggest that the reactivity of blood pressure to a change in general physical activity is highest during the morning. This time is associated with an increased risk in general of a sudden cardiac event, but more research work is needed to separate the influences of light, posture and exercise per se on the haemodynamic responses to sleep and physical activity following sleep taken at night and during the day as a nap.

Title Light pollution modeling and detection in a heterogeneous environment Type Journal Article
Year 2007 Publication Proceedings of Starlight 2007 conference. La Palma, Spain. Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Skyglow
Abstract Few attempts have been made to measure aerosol optical depth (AOD) behaviour

during the night. One such method uses spectrally calibrated stars as reference targets

but the available number of stars is limited. This is especially true for urban sites where

artificial lighting hide most of these stars. In our research we attempt to provide an

alternate method one which exploits the artificial sky glow generated by light pollution.

To achieve that goal, we designed a new methodology which links a 3D light

pollution model with in situ light pollution spectral measurements obtained with our

detector called Spectrometer for aerosol night detection (SAND). The basic idea was to

adjust an AOD value into the model in order to fit the measured artificial sky brightness.

This method requires an accurate model that includes spatial heterogeneity in lighting

angular geometry, in lighting spectral dependence, in ground spectral reflectance and

in topography along with a detailed definition of the vertical atmospheric profile. This

model, named ILLUMINA, computes 1st and 2nd order molecular and aerosol scattering

as well as aerosol absorption. A correction for sub grid obstacles is also included.

These model features represent major improvements to previous light pollution models.

Therefore, new possibilities for light pollution studies will arise, many of which are of

particular interest to the astronomical community. In this paper we will present model

and detector features and some of the first results derived from ILLUMINA model. We

will also present our web based spatio-temporal Sky spectral luminance measurements

database project.

Title Moonlight shifts the endogenous clock of Drosophila melanogaster Type Journal Article
Year 2007 Publication PNAS Abbreviated Journal
Volume 104 Issue 9 Pages 3538–3543
Keywords Animals; circadian rhythm; dual; oscillator model; PERIOD; synchronization; TIMELESS
Abstract The ability to be synchronized by light–dark cycles is a fundamental property of circadian clocks. Although there are indications that circadian clocks are extremely light-sensitive and that they can be set by the low irradiances that occur at dawn and dusk, this has not been shown on the cellular level. Here, we demonstrate that a subset of Drosophila's pacemaker neurons responds to nocturnal dim light. At a nighttime illumination comparable to quarter-moonlight intensity, the flies increase activity levels and shift their typical morning and evening activity peaks into the night. In parallel, clock protein levels are reduced, and clock protein rhythms shift in opposed direction in subsets of the previously identified morning and evening pacemaker cells. No effect was observed on the peripheral clock in the eye. Our results demonstrate that the neurons driving rhythmic behavior are extremely light-sensitive and capable of shifting activity in response to the very low light intensities that regularly occur in nature. This sensitivity may be instrumental in adaptation to different photoperiods, as was proposed by the morning and evening oscillator model of Pittendrigh and Daan. We also show that this adaptation depends on retinal input but is independent of cryptochrome.

Title Light Pollution: A Case for Federal Regulation? Type Journal Article
Year 2007 Publication Graduate Thesis. Rochester, New York: Rochester Institute of Technology Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Society; law; policy; public policy; light pollution; regulation; United States; regulation
Abstract The purpose of this thesis is to examine the body of evidence concerning light pollution and exposure to artificial light and determine if the scientific research warrants regulatory oversight in the United States. The first question that guided this effort was: Does improper artificial lighting and exposure to light-at-night constitute a risk to human health and safety? The follow up question being: Is light pollution a concern to ecological systems, and if so to what extent? A comprehensive literature review was conducted to ascertain the status of the research—if any—in these two areas and what the findings were. The overarching purpose of this thesis was to answer the primary question: Does the scientific research on light pollution and exposure to light-at-night exposure make a case for regulatory oversight, within the mandate of the EPA? The questions were illuminated by conducting a thorough literature review, doing an informal email survey, and by in-depth interviews with people researching artificial light and with individuals in the EPA. The study concluded that there is no ready consensus to be reached in this area. Such a disparate topic as light pollution does not readily lend itself to an easy answer. However, the findings show that light pollution and light-at-night exposure do have some negative impact. This is especially true in regards to the night sky and the biota. Whether the EPA should be involved in regulating it is not entirely clear. Their mission statement leads one to presume that certain effects of light pollution do fall under their mandate. More research to quantify the effects of artificial light on humans is critically needed to show causation between artificial light exposure and health problems.
