I am continuing to do research on Light Pollution and am learning a lot more about this field.
I met with Margaret this week. Definitely good use of my time. In addition to helping me research light pollution she gave me good advice for the research I am doing for my Redefinition of Art class.
The biggest problem I have right now is sorting through all the information and narrowing my scope. I know from my meeting with Gregory Dobler that the subject of light pollution can be subdivided into four subtopics:
- Loss of enjoyment of the night sky
- Limits astronomers' access to stars
- Ecology problems and bird deaths
- Human health impacts such as phase shifts of circadian rhythms and cancer
Of these four, the first most strongly resonates with me. I'm going to narrow my research focus to pursue this subtopic.
