    Hammond David

    Provision of an efficient winter maintenance service in urban areas can often be challenging. Urban Heat Island (UHI) effects often mean that single area wide forecasts are not always well suited to regions with urban population centres. Previous studies have shown how road surface temperature cooling rates vary considerably between urban and rural locations due to differences such as sky view factor [...]
