Description

The conversion of the natural landscape into a town or city is known as urbanization. The once-natural landscape that had vegetation such as grasses, shrubs, trees, and permeable soils is converted into a landscape of highly reflective buildings, dark-colored building surfaces that absorb heat, and impermeable pavement. This publication describes the effects of urban heat and how to reduce it. It is part of a Climate Change series of publications.
