Urban Albedo

Urban Albedo Computation in High-Latitude Locations: An Experimental Approach (Urban Albedo)

The Urban Albedo project is a partnership between Kent University, Loughborough University, and Brunel University, funded by EPSRC.

The project aims and objectives are to:

  • Incorporate accurate calculation and prediction of urbanĀ albedo in the planning and design process
  • Investigate experimentally the impact of urban fabric on urban albedo, using London as a case study
  • Develop a catalogue of urban albedo for various materials and geometrical confugurations
  • Develop an urban albedo calculator, an empirical model to predict changes in urban albedo in relation to changes in urban fabric and solar altitude
