Report in Betevé. CPSV experts are calling for cold islands to fight rising temperatures

According to previously published information, the researchers of the CPSV de la Blanca Arellano Ramos and Josep Roca Cladera, (IP) of the research projects in which this issue has been addressed, warn that more green areas must be planned in the Metropolitan Area to cope with the rise in temperatures caused by the effect of urban heat islands.

 

 

The need to develop more cold islands is highlighted: parks, trees and green areas.
