Journal of Climate: Effect of Urban Surfaces and White Roofs on Global and Regional Climate

Download File (4 MB pdf)

This paper described results from two sets of 20-yr global simulations under different model conditions to examine (i) the effects of urban surfaces (roofs and impervious ground surfaces, termed roads) and (ii) converting roofs to white roofs on global climate. Roads and roofs were treated at their actual scale in the model.
