An article on “Spatiotemporal patterns of the impact of surface roughness and morphology on urban heat island” was published on “Sustainable Cities and Society”

Highlights of the article:

  • We quantify the correlation between urban morphology and heat island.
  • 1D surface roughness emerges as a good indicator of urban morphology.
  • Urban planning needs to consider potential nonlinearity in the correlation.

The study was a collaboration with Dr. Zhi-Hua Wang’s research group in  Arizona State University.

More details of the article can be found from the journal website.
