Build-up of heat in cities depends on design of streets, buildings

Build-up of heat in cities depends on design of streets, buildings

Science
Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Every city's heat island effect is different. According to new research out of MIT, how a city heats up depends on the layout and design of its streets and buildings.Scientists found cities with more geometric, grid-like layouts, such as New York and Chicago, had a greater heat island effect than cities with less uniformity, like London and Boston.While grid-like cities boast a "crystalline" texture, more chaotic cities have a "glass-like" texture. In semi-solids like glass, the relationship between particles is less rigid and more liquid-like.Because cities feature a higher concentration of asphalt and concrete, which absorb and store the sun's heat very efficiently, they tend to heat up faster and stay warmer than their less developed surroundings. But as the latest rese...

U.S. forces are undeterred by China's military buildup on man-made islands in the South China Sea and will continue patrolling the strategic, disputed waters wherever "international law allows us," said a Navy officer aboard a mammoth U.S. aircraft carrier brimming with F-18 fighter jets.

Its chief executive, Simon Ellin, told the BBC he had no idea how the problem would be solved in the short term."It's a huge blow for us... a game-changer for our industry," he said. "We've relied on China so long for our waste… 55% of paper, 25% plus of plastics."We simply don't have the markets in the UK. It's going to mean big changes in our industry."China has introduced the ban from this month on "foreign garbage" as p...
