Short summary
As climate changes around the world it becomes increasingly important to understand how the built environment handles heating and cooling even on a localized basis. This study employed a dozen sensors placed on seven different types of surfaces (natural and built) to develop an understanding of how these surfaces affect temperatures in a campus setting. The data were collected at 15 min intervals over 2 years and are freely available through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
