ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on use of life cycle thinking to improve countermeasures against urban heat islands (UHI). Effective countermeasures against UHI are affected by changes in location, time and season. The study argues that effectiveness of UHI countermeasures can be improved through life cycle thinking and involves the evaluation of efforts to reduce air temperature and carbon dioxide levels. It recommends the use of life cycle inventory analysis to assess the impact of UHI. An overview of the study is provided.
