How bad is the Syrian civil war? Lucky lighting tells you with light data
Oct 10, 2018

The crisis that began in the "Arab Spring" in 2011 is the eighth year of this year.

In Syria, government forces, opposition parties, Kurdish armed forces, and terrorist organizations fought and smothered on this land; the neighbors of the Middle East, the extraterritorial powers, fought for their own interests or bare-chested, or the agents in the dark to support them. To this day, the war still does not see signs of ending.

Simply put, nighttime light data records the strength, distribution, and variation of artificial light sources on Earth's surface at night. Nighttime lighting (after removing forest fires, natural gas and oil burning, offshore drilling platforms, ships and other interfering light sources) can reflect socio-economic aspects such as population concentration, urbanization, and economic activity, and then reflect a country’s society. economic status.


We use the 2012 and 2018 NPP-VIIRS nighttime lighting image data for analysis, with a resolution of about 500 meters, which is the highest resolution public nighttime lighting image data. (The spatial resolution of the No. 1 nighttime light satellite launched by China is about 100 meters. It is still in the trial operation stage)
