NASA and the National Park Service worked together to create a web-based tool that helps park managers better understand the impact of outdoor lighting and noise on animal species in national parks.

The website allows park managers to choose a time period, such as the spring or winter seasons, and then zoom into a particular park to see sound and nighttime lights data and determine which animal species might be at risk from those sensory stimuli.

Observations from space, such as nighttime light data from the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite used to produce this United States map, help to better gauge the impact of outdoor lighting on animal species in national parks.

April 16-24, 2022, is National Park Week. Parks across the country are hosting events virtually and in-person.

NASA和国家公园管理局合作创建了一个基于网络的工具,帮助公园管理人员更好地了解户外光线和噪音对国家公园内动物物种的影响。

该网站允许公园管理人员选择一个时间段,如春季或冬季,然后放大到一个特定的公园,查看声音和夜间光线数据,并确定哪些动物物种可能受到这些感官刺激的威胁。

来自太空的观测,比如NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP卫星的夜间光线数据,用于绘制这张美国地图,有助于更好地评估户外光线对国家公园动物物种的影响。

2022年4月16日至24日,是国家公园周。全国各地的公园都在举办虚拟和现场的活动。
