Introduction to NIGHT LIGHT REMOTE SENSING (NLRS) – Quiz

There’s a lot to be explored about our planet “Earth” when the sun sets, and the lights are turned on. Seeing from space, our planet comes alive with those glittering lights. A unique measure of the lightning brightness of the earth is observed with the help of Night Time Lights datasets from space during the night.

It’s time to boost your knowledge and explore the less familiar domain of remote sensing of nights which is Night Light Remote Sensing.

So, are you ready to tease your instincts and put your mind at work? Enter this quiz to find out! We have created several questions for you to answer and have some fun exploring this new topic.
