One of the satellites measures light pollution and reflectance, creating an opportunity for researchers to distinguish between light sources, intensity, and types. This data was processed by the Black Marble research team, taking into account changes in the landscape (for example, floods), the atmosphere, and the phase of the moon, as well as filtering out stray light from sources that did not come from electric light.
