Abstract

We present an approach for better understanding of the exchange of energy between the built and natural environment. Using New York City as a study site, we established the proof of concept for a hybrid experimental-theoretical approach focusing on the radiative heat transfer only. Despite assumptions on surface emissivity and thermal conductivity of buildings walls, the close comparison of temperature values derived from measurements and the computed surface temperatures (including street and ground surfaces) implies that this geospatial, thermodynamic model applied to urban structures, is promising for accurate and high resolution analysis of instantaneous urban surface temperatures.
