[89.08] Sky Glow Modeling and Measurements

D. Davis (Planetary Science Institute)

It is very helpful to be able to model the impact of artificial night lighting on sky glow and also to measure such sky glow in a quantitative way. Such information is needed to understand the sources of the major impacts on the sky glow and to be able to offer effective solutions. This paper will review the current work underway on both these fronts, at professional observatories, a program in the Tucson and Pima County area in Tucson, by the National Park Service, and by the International Dark-Sky Association.
