Panel Discussion on Light in Nature

Paper Abstract

Light in nature addresses the optical phenomena we see in our everyday lives, ranging from rainbows and auroras to insect wing colors. Explanations of these phenomena draw from fields that include optical science, physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, astronomy, photography, and art. What is light? How do the beautiful and often colorful features in nature appear? What are the best ways of observing and studying these things? How does human vision affect what we see with these phenomena? Join this virtual live event panel discussion for an exploration into light in nature.
