This blog stands out as it depicts the effect the suns rays heat and cool the earth and many of the contributing or off-setting factors. The author used thermal radar imaging to see where and why some places radiated more heat or why the areas are able to stay cool. A degree change of 6 to 11 is quite significant and can be the difference from a desert and a forest. His finding showed that the coolest areas were highly wooded and older building that had a lot of cover that absorb and radiates the heat from the Sun. Roofs of building bare ground and concrete are the biggest reflectors of heat and trap them. Greenery can off set much of the heat but not enough, the forest to the north maintains the coolest temperatures while the apartments and urbanized to the west and south have substantially hotter temperatures.
