About 90 percent of this excessive heat is due to buildings and pavements that absorb and store solar heat (According to the Green Buildings Council). The only reference that focuses specifically on pavements, Pavement Materials for Heat Island Mitigation: Design and Management Strategies explores different advanced paving materials, their properties, and their associated advantages and disadvantages. Relevant properties of pavement materials (e.g. albedo, permeability, thermal conductivity, heat capacity and evaporation rate) are measured in many cases using newly developed methods.
Albrecht Dürer was certainly the most significant painter and engraver of the Northern Renaissance. Living in Nuremberg, between Netherlands and Italy, he found inspiration in the two most important centers of art at his time. But instead of simply imitating, Dürer goes own way of discoverer. He has published hundreds engravings. At…
