Synergies between Urban Heat Island Intensity (UHII) and Heat Waves (HW) in Sydney and possible mitigation technologies.

I want to investigate the possible interactions between Heat Waves (HWs) and Urban Heat Island Intensity (UHII) in Sydney, Australia to deploy the most suitable mitigation technologies in Eastern, Inner and Western Sydney. Additionally, the impact of these mitigation technologies will also be assessed in terms of energy consumption, peak electricity demand, mortality and environmental quality.
