Columbus Urban Heat Island Study – by David Celebrezze
Monday, March 6 – 6:00 – 7:00 pm
A well-known environmental and human health risk is the effects of heat in cities, particularly areas where there are few trees but lots of parking lots, buildings, and pavement. David Celebrezze of the City of Columbus will discuss the August 2022 project to collect data from Columbus neighborhoods and assess temp
erature differences. He will also discuss potential steps cities and individuals can take to mitigate the effects of heat as the climate becomes warmer.
