In this small project we will develop a robust system to monitor light pollution, crucial for the conservation and management of the Wadden Sea. This system will be able to accurately monitor the total amount of light at night, but also measure factors such as the color of the light due to its impact in the ecosystem. This proposal prepares for a regular Interreg proposal, in which we will extend this monitoring system throughout the North Sea Region, working with a variety of stakeholders to protect the darkness.
This is an international project carried out by three universities in the North Sea region. The contact person for each insitution can be found below:
