Heat in the city: understanding and mitigating urban heat islands
Cold materials, wind corridors, cool zones, mixed revegetation, green walls and roofs are among the solutions that make it possible to attenuate urban heat islands.
Urbanisation significantly changes the environment. One of the best-known phenomena is the urban heat island phenomenon which reflects the fact that cities are a few degrees warmer than adjacent suburban and rural areas. This phenomenon has many consequences on the health, economic and environmental levels. But how is it explained, what are the consequences and what urban development solutions can help to mitigate it?
Patrick Stella, Senior Lecturer at Agro ParisTech, will explain the urban heat island phenomenon and ways to mitigate it. Various approaches will be presented such as the use of new materials, urban reorganisation and revegetation.
This talk is organised byLeonard in partnership with the environmental research lab as part of the “30 minutes pour demain” talks.
The benefits and costs related to green infrastructure in cities need to be better understood through assessment tools that measure environmental impacts, for example, carbon emissions due to the transport of substrates,
