Analysis of the urban green areas of Nicosia: the case study of Linear Park of Pedieos River
At present, the need for creating outdoor green areas is unquestionable. Their value is shown through their use for recreation, sports, cultural and socioeconomic purposes, the ecology and especially
Impact of green infrastructures on urban microclimates: A critical review of data collection methods
Temperature is the most relevant factor affecting the urban microclimate. Increased urban density, hard surfaces with inappropriate thermal property and lack of vegetation have resulted in the
The effect of green spaces on the urban thermal environment during a hot-dry season: a case study of Port Harcourt, Nigeria
Improving the planning and management of urban green spaces can cause a drastic reduction in land surface temperature (LST). This research explored the geospatial techniques in assessing the effect
Sustainable Cities and Soil Quality of Green Spaces
Livability in cities is linked to the optimization of the conditions of urban life related to the environment in which organisms develop, and green spaces guarantee much of the biodiversity in
The impact of urban green areas on the surface thermal environment of a tropical city: a case study of Ibadan, Nigeria
This study assesses the relative impact of green areas on the surface thermal characteristics of an urban area. From this study, the existence of the Park Cool Island (PCI) around the green areas and
Correlation between the geometrical characteristics of streets and morphological features of trees for the formation of tree lines in the urban design of the city of Orestiada, Greece
This paper classifies the streets of the city of Orestiada, Greece, and examines the correlation between the geometric characteristics of streets and the appropriate height of trees that form the


Monitoring the effect of urban green areas on the heat island in Athens
It was concluded that in microscopic level, the temperature profile inside the National Garden and the immediate surrounding urban area did not showed a clear evidence of the influence of the Garden and it was dependent on the characteristics of each location.
The impact of park trees on microclimate in urban areas
Trees in cities have an important positive effect on people’s lives. One such positive effect is the amelioration of microclimate. The aim of this research is to assess the correlation between

The Wind-Shielding and Shading Effects of Trees on Residential Heating and Cooling Requirements
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has funded several research projects, including this study, to assess the effects of site design on building space conditioning energy use. An important strategy
城市设计 = Urban design
Urban design – overview Urban design is concerned with the design of the buildings, places, spaces and networks that make up our towns and cities, and the way people use them. Quality urban design
