Street smarts required in heat mitigation

Researchers investigated how solar reflective coatings on select Los Angeles city streets affected radiant heat and, in turn, pedestrians' comfort on a typical summer day.

But researchers wanted to measure what effect reflective coating had on pedestrians.
