This summer, the City of Raleigh is partnering on a citizen science project that will document urban heat island effects in Raleigh and Durham. This work supports Raleigh's Community Climate Action Plan. Join our partner at the Museum of Natural Sciences for this special mini-seminar to hear how Dr. Amanda Martin, North Carolina’s Chief Resilience Officer, thinks about extreme heat in urban areas! You will learn more about how heat is unevenly distributed in urban areas, how some people are impacted more significantly than others, and what we can do to improve resiliency to extreme heat in our cities. You’ll also learn how you can be a part of our local heat mapping project in July from local project leaders and youth from UNC’s YES-Resilience!
