The MIT Concrete Sustainabiility Hub (CSHub) has scheduled a webinar titled Addressing Climate Challenges with Cool Pavements: A Case Study of Boston and Phoenix for Thursday, September 23, at 11 a.m. Eastern time. The webinar will summarize the findings of a recent paper by CSHub researchers in environmental science and technology that investigates the effects of cool paving strategies in Boston and Phoenix. In the paper, the CSHub team explains how cool pavements could reduce peak summer air temperatures by around 3°F in both cities while also mitigating climate change impacts.

For a preview of the webinar, read this opinion piece in The Boston Globe written by CSHub's Co-director Dr. Randolph Kirchain. It outlines how and where cool pavements should be implemented to achieve the greatest benefits.
