  1. 1. The cooling potential of Rain Gardens and Green Roofs - The influence on energy partitioning in Kvillebäcken, Gothenburg

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Julia Cederbrant; [2021-07-05]
    Keywords : urban energy balance; urban water balance; SUEWS; energy partitioning; Blue-green infrastructure;

    Abstract : Blue-green infrastructure (BGI) has become a popular way of combating the effects of climatechange, both regarding heat mitigation and runoff from precipitation. This thesis aims tounderstand the potential of two BGI types, namely rain gardens and green roofs, of increasingthe latent heat fraction in an urban area and thereby also understand the possible cooling effectfrom these measures.
