The Response of Urban Landscape Elements to Solar Radiation
MetadataShow full item record
Solar radiation is the driver of urban heat and the urban landscape has the potential to manage this heat. The relative response of urban surface treatments and landscape elements to solar radiation has been quantified through the development and use of a novel methodology and a modified, low-cost temperature sensor. Resulting data are discussed in terms of the landscape element’s effect on urban heat and how a landscape designer might use this information.
