Urban sprawl: Observations on urban form, environment, and health 4/14
April 14, 2008
12:15 pm to 01:15 pm
MPC Seminar Room, 50 Willey Hall
Julian Marshall, Department of Civil Engineering, University of Minnesota
This talk will explore how neighborhood- and regional-scale urban form can influence energy, environmental, and health impacts of cities. The talk will present a scaling rule for urban land area expansion over time, offering quantification of urban sprawl (i.e., declining population density), and discuss implications for population exposure to urban air pollution.
