About Many cities suffer from urban heat problems and climate change is likely to exacerbate it. It is assumed that water bodies necessarily have a cooling effect but, during warm summer, this effect is limited over day and may even originate night time warming. Designers need to be given guidance on how to design urban water bodies with an effective cooling potential.
