ASU Now just published a great article covering some of the university’s latest research! The ASU PhD research team from the Julie Ann Wrigley School of Sustainability at Arizona State University, including Ariane Middel, Nancy Selover and Nalini Chhetri, as well as the plethora of ASU students that helped with surveying and data collection, all did a fantastic job on this unique research challenge quantifying the value of shade underneath a PowerParasol.

Aariane Middel recording data underneath the Memorial Union PowerParasol. She collected readings on humidity, ambient temperature and wind speed to set the context for thermal comfort surveys of pedestrians.
