Abstract: Water bodies are known to be about the best absorbers of radiation, yet they exhibit very little thermal response. Air temperature near or over bodies of water is much different from that over land due to differences in the way water heats and cools. In Singapore, water features within an urban area have a positive effect on the microclimate of the surrounding areas when natural cooling from the evaporative process is needed on a hot sunny day. The increased availability of water usually enhances evaporation, and the associated uptake of latent heat provides a daytime cooling effect. In this research, four water bodies in Singapore, the Kallang River, Sungei Api-Api River, Marina Bay, and Bedok Reservoir, were looked into as an effective measurement of the waterways? evaporative cooling performance for the surrounding microclimate, especially in hot and humid climates.
