Dallas Urban Heat Management Study
A regional climate and health assessment conducted by the Urban Climate Lab of the Georgia Institute of Technology for the Texas Trees Foundation
The Dallas Urban Heat Management Study shows the extent to which the City of Dallas is warming due to urban development and estimates to what extent rising temperatures will have an impact on public health. This study is one of the largest urban heat assessments in the US, with data from more than 4,000 points across the city, and models heat exposure and the potential impact from various heat management strategies.
