Mitigation and Adaptation of Urban Overheating: The Impact of Warmer Cities on Climate, Energy, Health, Environmental Quality, Economy, and Quality of Life analyzes and presents all existing relative studies to investigate the global magnitude and characteristics of the ambient temperature drop and the reduction of the heat burden resulting from modified climate conditions due to the implementation of urban mitigation and adaptation technologies and policies. Sections discuss urban overheating, urban heat mitigation, governance, anthropogenic heat emissions, adaptation and adaptation technologies and their impacts on urban environmental quality, urban health, energy supply and demand, low-income and aged populations, the economy of cities.Additional sections incorporate recent developments on urban climatology, urban overheating, mitigation and adaptation technologies.
Provides quantitative and qualitative information to overcome and bridge the existing gap of knowledge regarding the impact of urban overheating, mitigation, and adaptation
Includes the latest developments on the evaluation of urban climatic change on energy, health, environment, society, and economy
Explains the impact of urban climatic change, mitigation technologies, and adaptation technologies on built environment
Environmental scientists, environmental engineers, climatologists, energy scientists, postgraduate students, researchers, architects and policymakers
