Cooling the urban tropics

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    As tropical cities expand rapidly, more and more urban dwellers are subjected to the negative climatic consequences of haphazard urbanization. This problem is being super-imposed on the global warming trend. While this is the bad news, the good news is that possibilities to mitigate urban warming can be found within the urban form itself.
