What’s Cooler than Cool? Cooler Pavements for Urban Heat Island Mitigation

TRB is hosting a series of Urban Heat Island recordings in July and August 2020. Part 1 provided an overview of the UHI phenomenon. Presenters explored why cities and agencies are looking to reduce the UHI effect and what the current understanding of UHI is. They also quantified the impact of pavements on UHI.

The videos are available.
