Research: Retrieval of angular emission function from whole-city light sources

The research performed by our team promises great progress in light-pollution modeling as this is the first time the indirect remote-sensing method, to retrieve the CEF from sky-brightness measurements, has been developed and successfully applied to experimental data.

Workgroup: Miroslav KOCIFAJ, Ladislav Kómar, Jaromír Petržala, František Kundracik, Ondrej Štefík
Research projects: APVV-14-0017 and VEGA 2/0016/16
