Paper Title:
The Thermal Influence of Green Roofs on Air Temperature in Taipei City
  Abstract

During the last decade, a large amount of research has been published in Taiwan on the reduction of the urban heat island effect for different strategies. The most important strategy for reducing ambient temperature and mitigating the heat island effect is to encourage citizens to build green roofs on their buildings. For analyzing the effect of a green roof on the thermal environment, this paper collects temperature and humidity data from two building roofs that have different greening levels and tries to analyze the thermal influence of a green roof on air temperature in Taipei City. The results of this research can give citizens an idea what kind of thermal environment they can benefit from; moreover, it also can provide useful data to governments for calculating the environmental benefit if they carry out a green roof policy.
