Heat in Urban Asia

Asian cities are getting hotter. This is partly a global problem, resulting from anthropogenic climate change, and partly a local problem, caused by the excessive use of concrete and energy intensive technologies. This website presents data, maps, stories, and images that help us to examine the past, present, and future of heat in urban Asia.
