Gaffin, S.R., R. Khanbilvardi, and C. Rosenzweig, 2009: Development of a green roof environmental monitoring and meteorological network in New York City. Sensors, 9, 2647-2660, doi:10.3390/s90402647.

Green roofs (with plant cover) are gaining attention in the United States as a versatile new environmental mitigation technology. Interest in data on the environmental performance of these systems is growing, particularly with respect to urban heat island mitigation and stormwater runoff control. We are deploying research stations on a diverse array of green roofs within the New York City area, affording a new opportunity to monitor urban environmental conditions at small scales. We show some green roof systems being monitored, describe the sensor selection employed to study energy balance, and show samples of selected data. These roofs should be superior to other urban rooftops as sites for meteorological stations.
