Dr. Lu Liang (Assistant Professor, UNT Geography and the Environment) has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant to study the effects of urban pollution on thermal environments of cities. Find out more about the project here: "Using a mixed methods approach, this project couples a dense network of fine-scale ground measurements of air temperature and air particulates collected via citizen scientists, with large-scale remotely sensed data of land surface temperature and aerosols. These data will be analyzed to determine when and where urban heat islands and urban pollution islands occur, and the risks that their interaction poses to urban residents. These results will support informed decision-making for urban heat and air pollution mitigation." Learn more about Dr. Liang's research on her website (here).
