There is a fact that the urban air temperature is gradually raising in all cities and some effective measures are needed to mitigate it. Planting of vegetation is one of the main strategies to mitigate the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect. Large urban parks can extend the positive effects to the surrounding built environment. National University of Singapore (NUS) complex can be considered as a "city" in a smaller scale. The greenery area along Kent Ridge Road seems like the "rural" area, with a cooler ambient temperature. Some methodologies were employed in this study, such as field measurement and computer simulations. Field measurement was used to get the real temperature distribution across the campus and finally, computer simulation was used to predict some scenarios of different conditions.||Source Title:||PLEA 2006 - 23rd International Conference on Passive and Low Energy Architecture, Conference Proceedings||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/45966|
