Our Cities like hot hells of cement
The Italian Research Council (CNR) has recently published a study about “temperatures distribution in Rome”, using remote sensing technologies and techniques. The study revealed that about 90% of the entire city area is covered by buildings or roads and some areas are affected by very high temperatures (around 60 celsius degrees). The data have been collected by the Multispectral Infrared Visible Imaging Spectrometer (Mivis). The study shows how temperature level is a consequence of urban area coverage: higher if there is a lack of green areas and waters, known as a heat mitigation elements.
