Please take an Urban Heat Island Survey

Please consider taking a survey on “Understanding the Urban Heat Island Mitigation Strategies and Their Implementation”. The survey was developed by the National Center of Excellence for SMART Innovations at Arizona State University (ASU), with support from the National Asphalt Pavement Association. The survey seeks to obtain information and qualitative perspectives on UHI and proposed mitigation strategies from personnel in industry, academia, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and interested individuals.

 The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete; all the information collected is anonymous, however a summary of findings will be made available upon request.

 Please contact Dr. Jose Campillo ( or Mr. Chenghao Wang ( for additional information or future inquiries.

Here is the link to the survey
