Cool Pavements

Cool Pavements
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides an overview of the basic principles of cool pavements and how they work to reduce the heat island effect.

Cool pavements refer to a range of established and emerging materials. These pavement technologies tend to store less heat and may have lower surface temperatures compared with conventional products. As concerns about elevated summertime temperatures rise, researchers and policymakers are directing more attention to the impact pavements have on local and global climates.

This presentation demonstrates the factors involved in cool pavements and how they can be modified to address the problem of urban heat islands. It also shows how location-specific information can be obtained to update existing technologies, enhance the pavement selection process, and implement new approaches to cool pavements, thus targeting increased benefits and reduced life-cycle costs.

This 1 PDH online course is intended for environmental engineers, researchers, decision-makers and local experts interested in better understanding and implementing cool pavements.
