  • Green roofs are a common stormwater control measure used to help mitigate increased stormwater runoff caused by urbanization. Green roofs can retain upwards of 90% of rain given the appropriate conditions. Green roof design parameters, such as substrate composition and depth and plant type, affect the retention capabilities of green roofs by storing and allowing greater extraction of water by plants for evapotranspiration (ET). Evapotranspiration has been studied extensively in agriculture to… CONTINUE READING
