    Did you try comparing a tile with foil on the underside to a standard tile?

    My ad hoc solution to a poorly designed terrace extension. Reduces internal temp from unihabitable 31 deg to around 25 deg. Windows on SE elevation. :sad:

    Garden shade cloth came in precut size of 4 x 3 m so it is doubled. One result of that are the moire patterns that create attractive dappled shadows. :bigsmile:

    Resurrected this thread as I saw this article this morning

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/07/100719162945.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily+%28ScienceDaily%3A+Latest+Science+News%29&utm_content=Google+UK

    Pondering an experiment now on how to test a 'green roof' as I think there is some mileage in it.

    Don't want to pour cold water on this idea but a quick look at the globe will show you that there are orders of magnitude over and above UHI involved in the Earth albedo component.
