Urban Heat Island Analysis

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 2
Project Description In 2001, the P2 team awarded a $30,000 grant to Columbia University Earth Institute in cooperation with NASA-Goddard Institute of Space Sciences for a project on the mitigation of urban heat island impacts on specific neighborhoods. The project will apply the American Forestry Association Green Cities Model, which uses remote sensing to determine ground level heat impacts, and then specifies tree cover to mitigate the temperature impacts. The project will link the outputs of the neighborhood analysis into Smart Growth principles, which can serve as the basis for developing an outreach campaign on energy efficiency, public health, and urban quality of life beyond existing programs.
