Description

The Urban Heat Island Index quantifies the extent and severity of urban heat islands for individual cities, including Urban Heat Island Interactive Maps, showing the urban heat island effect for each census tract in and around most urban areas throughout the state. This can also help identify and prioritize areas across the state for adaptation efforts such as urban greening and cool roofs and pavements.
