Caldey is een minuscuul eiland voor de kust van Wales waar de tijd lijkt stil te staan. Wat ooit een bruisend eiland was met kinderen, een school en een buurthuis, is tegenwoordig de basis van een afgezonderd bestaan. Geen supermarkt. Geen straatverlichting. Alleen een vaste kern van achtentwintig bewoners, waaronder twaalf monniken, die één zijn met de ruige natuur. De eilanders zijn afhankelijk van het tij, het licht en elkaar.
How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature
BY NICHOLAS RAJKOVICH
@ VOL 16
ON APR 14, 2016
"How do we start thinking about heat waves and why are heat waves so important?"
In How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, architect and University at Buffalo Professor, Nicholas B. Rajkovich describes the design of a bicycle-based weather station used to find the “hot spots” of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Every year in the United States, more people die from heat waves than any other type of natural disaster. Extreme heat events are expected to increase in the future due to climate change. Collecting a fine scale of microclimatic data can help to determine how physical characteristics contribute to human exposure to ground and air temperatures. These data also suggest how urban design strategies can reduce the impacts of the urban heat island effect. However, microclimate measurement poses substantial challenges. Rajkovich’s work investigates the intersection of energy efficient buildings, renewable energy, and climate change resilience.

Smart & Connected: Management of Thermal Extremes
BY ZOÉ HAMSTEAD
@ VOL 19
ON MAR 14, 2018
"What is the connective tissue that we need—both technologically and socially—to create adaptive strategies that are greater than the sum of our parts?"
In Smart & Connected from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, Assistant Professor in the University at Buffalo Department of Urban & Regional Planning, Zoé Hamstead, describes a linked practice-research endeavor that addresses how cities manage heat and cold events. Localized differences in exposure and coping capacity impact the effectiveness of public agencies, organizations and individuals to respond to episodic thermal events. Since thermal vulnerability is shaped by complex interactions across environmental, social and technological variability, addressing this challenge will require integration of traditionally siloed disciplinary knowledge and agency management strategies. As part of a National Science Foundation-funded Smart & Connected Communities (S&CC) planning grant, collaborators in Buffalo/Erie County, New York and Tempe/Maricopa County, Arizona are working together to build capacity for integrating research with practice for managing thermal extremes.
