Arizona State University researcher Ariane Middel and her colleagues investigated how solar reflective coatings on select Los Angeles city streets affected radiant heat and, in turn, pedestrians’ comfort on a typical summer day.The idea is, if you coat a street with a lighter color than traditional pavement black, it will actually lower the surrounding temperatures. But ASU Ariane Middel and her collaborators wanted to measure what effect reflective coating had on pedestrians.
