Tracking A City’s Emissions, Building by Building (Computer Simulation)
By Climate Central
Scientists at Arizona State University have announced a new computer simulation that displays a city’s greenhouse-gas emissions in unprecedented detail, showing how much heat-trapping carbon dioxide individual buildings and highways generate.
The model, known as Hestia (after the Greek goddess of the hearth), and described in a paper in the October 9 issue of Environmental Science and Technology, could give cities a much better handle on how to reduce their emissions most efficiently.
