In this paper, we examine Handgun Control Inc. and the National Rifle Association’s contributions to mobilizations, for and against gun control. As with any social and political movement, we find these two opposing networks, the proponents of gun control and the anti-gun control groups, utilizing each other’s frames, actions and policies as a way of countering the opposition and advancing their own agendas.

Quantifying the Trade-off Between Landscape Vegetation Height, Surface Temperature and Water Consumption in Single-Family Homes in Tempe, AZ

Description

The research shows that vegetation height differentially affects surface temperature at the residential parcel-level. Vegetation of 5m-10m height is correlated to mitigation of extreme temperatures, lowering daytime surface temperatures and

The research shows that vegetation height differentially affects surface temperature at the residential parcel-level. Vegetation of 5m-10m height is correlated to mitigation of extreme temperatures, lowering daytime surface temperatures and raising nighttime surface temperatures. Vegetation of 1.5m-5m height lowered daytime surface temperatures to a lesser magnitude than vegetation of taller height. Results imply that planners and landscape designers should consider strategically arranging buildings and vegetation to maximize shading and cooling benefit.
