Are Cities Warming Faster than the Planet as a Whole?
MetadataShow full item record
How rapidly are large U.S. cities like Atlanta warming and what steps can be taken to manage climate change in urban areas? This talk will explore the methods employed to measure urban and global temperature trends and document the rate of temperature change with 50 of the most populous U.S. metropolitan areas between 1950 and 2000. The distinction between the urban and global mechanisms of warming will be considered as part of a more general discussion of climate change management in cities.
