Urban Heat Islands (UHI) are a common phenomenon in which urban areas are warmer than adjacent rural areas. As the climate continues to change and more people move into urban areas, the UHI effect becomes more pronounced, especially with regards to energy consumption and public health. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, August 13, 2020 from 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern that will synthesize knowledge of pavement technologies that have the potential to mitigate the UHI effect. Presenters will discuss permeable pavements, reflective pavements, and phase change materials. They will also present a case study that explores challenges involved with implementing these solutions.
This webinar was organized by the TRB Sustainable and Resilient Pavements Subcommittee.
