Synergies between Urban Heat Island (UHI) and Heat Waves (UW) in Sydney and possible Mitigation Technologies

I want to explore in detail possible interactions between Heat Waves (HWs) and Urban Heat Islands (UHI) in Sydney, Australia which will make us able to understand how UHI intensity gets affected during HW and NHW periods in Sydney as compared to surrounding areas. Additionally, in the second part of my PhD, I want to explore mitigation technologies which can be employed in Sydney, Australia to reduce the UHI intensity.
