Vertical air temperature gradients under the shade of two contrasting urban tree species during different types of summer days

Highlights Below-canopy cooling benefits of tree species can vary depending on weather types. We studied air temperature from the tree canopies to the ground under tree shades. 20 Robinia pseudoacacia and Tilia cordata trees were studied during the summer 2016. Shading is the prominent cooling benefits when the days are very hot. Transpirational cooling from trees and grasses …
