Urban heat island measure technologies are classified roughly improvement of the building and pavement coating, promotion of ventilation in the urban area, reduction of the exhaust heat from building and vehicle. Cool paint is one of the technologies of improvement of the building and pavement coating, with green roof, and water-holding material. Since the performance of cool paint depends on quantity of reflective solar radiation and those of green roof and water-holding material depend on quantity of evaporation, it is hard to compare their performance directly. This book examines the effect of cool paint as a heat island measure technology by comparing it to other technologies. (Imprint: Nova)
