Large cities are known to have higher temperatures than ruralrcas(农村地区)in summer months．This extra heat can raisetemperatures in cities by about one to three degrees compared to rural areas.
Scientists say thcrc arc many reasons for this Onereason is that heat from the sun can go through many of the building materials commonly found in cities One such material is asphalt(沥青),which is often placed on top of buildings and uscd to cover road surfaces.
RecentIy，researchers studied ways to reduce the heat in dovelopedarcas Scienti ts with the National Center for Atmospheric Research led the study They found that painting the tops ot buildings white could possibly help to cool cities .The researchers used computer model that could tell the effects ofthe sun’s heat. The compared the effects of black surlacs on rooftops with white roofs They found that a city with only
white rooftops could reduce the heat effect by 33％.
However,white roofs could have the opposite effect in wintcr That is because they have a cooling effect within buildings Cooler building temperatures in winter could require more energy to heat the buildings.
Theresearebers found that sonic cities would be helped more than others from white roofs This would depend on the total surface area of roofs in a city .It would also
depend on the building materials used since some materials are leresitant to heat (耐热的)than others. The researchers say white roofs would work best in areas with temperatures and strong sunlight all year.
