Mapping Heat in U.S. Cities
14 September 2023
The Urban Heat Island (UHI) mapping campaign is part of a larger project that aims to map urban heat islands in cities to better inform scientists about the temperatures within specific areas based on heat waves and heat domes.
The mapping is part of a greater effort to map urban heat Islands in an era of climate change, which is making some cities potentially hazardous.
The results of mapping in North Carolina have highlighted the potential dangers of heat islands in cities, which is known as the urban heat island effect.
