Urban atmospheric conditions are usually warmer, drier and dirtier than those of rural areas owing to reduction of green and water space areas. Polluted air accumulates on the surface of urban areas, because airflow does not take place for stagnation of the atmosphere. Therefore, reducing city cooling loads can provide significant environmental and economic benefits for our urban areas.
