概要
Brief Description
Around half of the world’s human population lives in urban areas. In the near future it is expected that the global rate of urbanization will increase by 70% of the present world urban population by 2030. Thereby, it is not surprising that the negative impacts related to urbanization is an increasing concern capturing the attention of people worldwide. This course is designed to introduce the urban heat island (UHI) effects and UHI mitigation strategies in mega-cities. We will look at topics such as rooftop garden, cool pavements and so on.

Objectives and Goals

15 Core Competencies for General Education
「ジャパニーズ・スタディーズ」は「日本」という事例を通して、「世界」を学ぶ、また「世界」を通して「日本」を学ぶという目的を持った科目である。日本についての基礎知識を学ぶだけでなく、自らの体験、自らの文化と照らし合わせて日本を見つめ直すことによって、様々な事象についての新しい視点、より深い気づきを得られることを目指している。
The aim of courses categorized under the rubric ""Japanese Studies"" is to teach about the world, using Japan as a case-study, and vice versa. In Japanese Studies courses we do not just provide students with foundational knowledge about Japanese culture and society, but we also offer an environment that allows students to reconsider their image of Japan by reflecting on their own experiences and cultures, and to acquire new perspectives and a deeper awareness of a variety of global phenomena.

This course provides a broad overview of developments and patterns in modeling effects of UHI mitigation strategies. Students will emerge from the course with an understanding of both the UHI effects and UHI mitigation. Moreover, students will learn a basic ArcGIS mapping technology, such as making the UHIs map using ArcGIS.
