UC Riverside scientist to explore how vegetation affects urban heat islands
Date:10/28/2008

ood, all the way up to the entire region?" he said. "Much of the cooling associated with vegetation comes at a cost for water. With increased restrictions on water throughout the southwestern United States, understanding the consequences of water allocation is essential for making appropriate decisions."

The researchers will seek answers to guide policymakers and planners in bolstering protective measures to prevent heat-related illness and deaths. They also will examine how global environmental change combines with local conditions to affect human vulnerability to climate change.

More than a dozen researchers working in nearly as many scientific disciplines and subdisciplines are involved in the project.

The team will share its findings locally and nationally with city planners and health agencies and provide data to public health officials responsible for developing early warning systems and heat-illness prevention programs.
