Sep 7 - Free EPA Webinar - Heat Islands

  • 09/07/2017

How can you tell if your city is an urban heat island? Where are the “hot spots” and cooler areas within the city? Do vulnerable populations, such as older adults or low-income individuals, tend to live in warmer neighborhoods? More and more communities across the United States are asking these questions—and wondering how to answer them. This 90-minute webcast will explore approaches for  conducting a heat island assessment, starting with overarching considerations to guide the study design and finishing with case studies of two cities that have used different methods to characterize their heat islands.
