Monash University – International Centre for Water Sensitive Cities What is the effect of the ‘urban heat island’? •Temperatures of dark, dry surfaces in direct sun can reach 88°C during the day, while vegetated surfaces with moist soil under the same conditions might reach only 18°C. •These dark surfaces include roads, roofs and car parks that create artificial warmth or urban heat islands in built up areas. •In February 2012, Monash University analysed the effects of irrigation of an urban park on local and downwind climate.
