The Extreme Heat Network is an interdisciplinary community of research and practice on the causes, impacts, and strategies to increase resilience to extreme heat. Please contact us if you would like to get involved.
Planning for Extreme Heat Survey
Our collaborative research team from the University of Arizona and Arizona State University is studying how planning professionals address extreme heat. Our goal is to survey planning professionals from a wide range of U.S. communities to better understand how extreme heat risk perceptions, current planning activities, and barriers to action vary across the country. This information will be useful for practitioners and researchers in the effort to create more extreme heat resilient communities.
Recharge the Rain (RtR) Project
College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture faculty partnered with the Water Resources Research Center's Arizona Project Wet (APW) to develop a protocol to collect ambient and radiant temperature readings at Recharge the Rain (RtR) project sites over the summer of 2019.
