Explain how this could contribute to the city as a “heat island” (see p. 461). Ensure that you demonstrate an understanding of albedo, and refer to the absorption/reflection of radiation, as well as insulation of infra red radiation.
Review and read sections 10-1 and 10-2 on energy transfer. Finish diagrams depicting radiation, convection, conduction.
Read Ch. 10 section 10.1.
