Preprocessing .lux - Breeding grounds without night

Question

Hi everyone,

 

I used "twilightCalc" to preprocess my .lux files and it worked beautiful for all my tags except one.

From June 3rd to July 31st I cannot define day vs. night because the light levels are essentially the same. This bird is going so far north that basically there isn't' night; that's my guess.

 

I'm not quite sure how to deal with these data. Should I exclude this period from my data?

Any advice will be appreciated.

Many thanks!

Ana

  You should definitely exclude twilights with sun being very high up. For FLightR you can also make a higher threshold while defining twilights - it usually works fine.
