South:The Urban Heat Island and Its Hazards
Event Description

As the Bexar County metropolitan area expands, progressive replacement of natural surfaces with built surfaces inhibits atmospheric cooling. As a result, heat within the urban center increases, water quality decreases, and ecosystems are impaired. This luncheon will feature a leading researcher and river specialist as they share their data on the local heat island effect, its ecological consequences, and discuss solutions to mitigate impacts.
