Civil & Env. Engineering Seminar:
The Meteorology of Urban Heat Islands

Speaker(s)

  • Elie Bou-Zeid

    Dr. Elie Bou-Zeid is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the director of the Program in Environmental Engineering and Water Resources at Princeton University. He is also the coordinator of Princeton’s Metropolis Project.
    His research focuses on the integration of theory, numerical simulations, and experimental observations to study flow and transport in the lowest kilometer of the atmosphere, where humans live and have a direct impact on the planet. In particular, he is interested in applications related to the built environment including urban environmental quality, climate-aware infrastructure, energy efficiency, and urban sensor networks.
    Bou-Zeid holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the American University of Beirut, and a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University.

Abstract:  While urban heat islands have mostly been studied as climatological phenomena, the temporal variability of their signal hints at significant meso to synoptic time-scale dynamics. In this talk, we will overview the physical processes responsible for the urban heat island, how we represent these physics ...
