Konica Minolta Sensing's CL-500A Spectrophotometer sheds light on endangered sea turtles and their nesting habits.

Konica Minolta Sensing Americas was pleased to participate in the study through its use of its illuminance spectrophotometer used onsite to measure realistic color temperatures and CRI values of exterior lighting.

The CL-500A provided the Florida Wildlife Commission with data truer to the realistic readings required in determining the optimal light levels needed to protect the turtles and their nesting habits.

Read a case study on how Konica Minolta Sensing's CL-500A measurements contributed to the environmental and biological findings proving the effects of artificial lighting on sea turtles’ nesting habits.
