Scientific Articles

In 2003 and 2004, I published pioneering popular articles on the problem of light pollution from an environmental point of view, including the impact of LEDs. My first scientific publication on light pollution, in which I presented the first European statistics on light pollution, was published in the proceedings of the UNESCO International Conference in Defense of the Sky and the Right to See the Stars, held on the island of La Palma in 2007.
