AbstractUrban residents experience a highly transient climate. Within this context, natural conditions are altered by the artificial landscape of buildings and infrastructure. The effect of urban form on microclimate is relevant to human comfort and temperature stress, a critical issue often overlooked. As the trend towards urbanization continues, policy makers and planners will need to address microclimate in the design of environments that simultaneously promotes human health and sustainability ...
