Abstract

In London, the urban heat island increases the average and peak air temperatures

hourly air temperature in London has been measured continuously for a

have shown that central areas of London are signi?ficantly warmer than the surrounding

as input to a thermal simulation model to assess the heating and cooling load of

the heat island. It is found that the urban cooling load is up to 25% higher over

at a rural location. The net rate of increase of CO2 with temperature is found to

be 2.8%/K.
