Arizona State University publica un estudio sobre la valoración de la efectividad de las medidas encaminadas a mitigar el efecto “isla de calor” de las ciudades. De acuerdo al estudio, el uso de vegetación es la medida más efectiva para reducir este efecto.

The objective of this study is to identify knowledge gaps regarding the scientific understanding of UHI and effective mitigation measures, with a focus on the use of cool pavements. We first reviewed scientific papers, reports, and online articles published in the past decade to summarize recent scientific advances in cool pavements. We reviewed existing efforts on reflective pavements, permeable pavements, and other innovative pavement designs used in UHI mitigation. Reflective pavements cool surface temperature by absorbing less solar radiation and therefore reduce summer energy consumption and carbon emissions, but they may lead to unintended consequences such as increased energy and cost for heating during winters and increased human thermal exposure.
