Green Roof Thermodynamics Video - Night Temperature Reading Comparisons

Short video of one hour after sunset temperature readings of an non-irrigated, extensive green roof as compared to adjacent asphalt shingles.

Extensive, non-irrigated green roofs have a tendency to act as heat sinks and store heat during the day, releasing the heat during the evening back to the air and to the roofing structure underneath.
