HOW VEGETATION AFFECTS CLIMATE AND COMFORT

THE POTENTIAL OF AN ENVIRONMENT FOR THE ELIMINATION OF MANS HEAT-NOT TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY ALONE DETERMINES COMFORT. THE MODES OF HEAT EXCHANGE ARE ENUMERATED AND PLACED IN AN ANALYTIC FRAMEWORK THAT PERMIT MANS HEAT TO BE ESTIMATED FROM MICROMETEOROLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS. OPEN GRASSLAND AND AN ISOLATED SHADE TREE, A THICKET AND A CLEARING, AND SAND AND ASPHALT SURFACES ARE COMPARED. /AUTHOR/
