Urban heat island research featured in International Innovation magazine

CAP co-PI Sharon Harlan and the research team on the National Science Foundation-funded "Urban Vulnerability to Climate Change" project are featured in a special issue of International Innovation that focuses on making sense of Earth's dramatically changing climate. In the article, research team members reflect on the scientific significance and practical applications of their research, which investigates human vulnerability to urban heat in the Phoenix metropolitan area. This research is being conducted in collaboration with CAP LTER, which has supported some of the remote sensing work under the initiative.
